Departmental Professional Development Offering:
Effective Teaching Strategies


This collaborative cohort model of professional development leverages professors' collective knowledge by bringing together those who wish to focus on effective teaching methods. Group members will have opportunities to consider current research pertaining to effective teaching and discuss application of these strategies in their courses. Sessions are designed to offer flexibility and foster collegial relationships.

This series is especially beneficial for instructors:

  • Wanting to learn more about the relationship between teaching and learning
  • Desiring to remain current in teaching and learning research
  • Hoping to add to their existing teaching repertoire


Participants should expect to attend four 90-minute face-to-face sessions and possibly complete readings or view short instructional videos beyond these face-to-face meeting times. Sessions are considered true WORKshops with attendees applying ideas to the courses they teach.

The four 90-minute face-to-face sessions are listed below.

  • WORKshop: Lecture as a Learning Experience
  • WORKshop: Case and Problem-Based Learning
  • WORKshop: Experiential Learning Strategies
  • WORKshop: Synthesizing the Learning

The examples of reading and video topics are listed below. They vary in time duration, but typically 10 to 30 minutes per topic.
  • Making Your Lecture a Tool for Learning
  • Using Case Studies to Increase Retention
  • Experiential Learning Techniques
