A New Semester

August 30th, 2017

As Brandeis classes begin again for the fall, it’s important to pause and consider what you want the semester to look like. There are endless details to consider in shaping your classroom and the experience of your students.

Will you allow laptops or tablets in class? How will you treat student errors? Are there opportunities for students to earn participation credit outside of a classroom discussion? What strategies will you employ to be sure you create an inclusive space? Will current events play into your class sessions, even if they do not connect to your course materials directly? How will you protect your time away from teaching?

We’re here to help, and happy to discuss these questions with you in detail. For now, you may find these Quick Tips for Teaching, put together by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, and let us know your thoughts.

We wish you the best for this fall and we look forward to working with you this year!
