If you are a KSU part-time instructor wishing to energize your teaching and to take it to the next level, this two-day program is for you!

In this Teaching Academy, you will be introduced to research on student learning, information processing and skill development, and to teaching strategies tailored to foster deep lasting learning in your students. Rather than simply listening to presenters, the sessions will be very interactive, and they will be time during the two days dedicated to apply the theory to your own courses.

Some of the topics discussed will include:

- principles of learning

- course design

- learning-centered instructional strategies

- assessments that measure and extend learning

- conflict management in the classroom

- motivating students

- academic integrity

- responding to student diversity

In order to allow for individualized support, participation is limited to 16 attendees. Admission into the academy is competitive, and being able to attend for the entire duration of the two-day program is a prerequisite. Participants will be compensated with $500.
