New! Leadership & Teaching Series
UMBC’s Faculty Development Center Launches the Leadership & Teaching Series!
Sessions in this series are designed to help you to reflect on challenges in teaching facing higher education and how you, in your role as a formal or informal leader at UMBC, can contribute to innovative solutions. Faculty and staff colleagues will address specific challenges in interactive presentations designed to help you explore key questions, for example,
- How can you use research to improve teaching, learning, and curriculum design?
- How can you connect to other teaching leaders to identify common challenges and devise shared solutions?
- How can you contribute to a collaborative culture of evidence-based teaching to improve student learning?
- How can you identify policies, processes, and technologies that make it easier to gather and use evidence of student learning?
Who should attend?
- Chairs, deans, graduate program directors, and others in formal leadership roles
- Faculty and staff with informal leadership roles or who aspire to be campus leaders
We launch our series in early March with Bridging Student Learning Outcomes and Student Success Analytics, an interactive program that demonstrates how faculty and staff integrate assessment and learning analytics data to improve student success. Our second program, Closing the Loop, invites you to share evidence of learning challenges and collaborate with colleagues on potential solutions.
