Fall 2021 Workshops & Programs

Teaching & Learning Innovation offers programming to assist all faculty, graduate and professional students, post-doctoral fellows, and administrative staff in relevant areas for their professional growth and instructional success.
Below you will find our fall 2021 program offerings listed:
  • By date in chronological order
  • By TLI Area of Excellence (Inclusive Teaching, Curriculum Development & Design, Developing Future Faculty, and the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning).
  • Winter Mini-Term – This is a 6 week series of programs offered via Zoom in collaboration with the Office of Online Learning & Academic Programs and the Office of Information Technology. These programs are designed to equip faculty with effective teaching strategies as they plan to teach during the forthcoming winter mini-term (January 2022).
  • New Faculty Teaching Support – This is a 3 part series of monthly programs designed to support new faculty members with connection to relevant campus offices and units, as well as other faculty from across the university.
