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 there will be time during the two days dedicated to apply the theories and research 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
