CETL: Free Books, 8-week Courses & Document Accessibility

It’s not too late to join Lab: Design of 8-week Courses

Asynchronous D2L work: Thurs., Sept. 1 – Fri., Oct. 7  |  Facilitator: Rachel Rupprecht

The goal of this five-week mostly asynchronous lab is to familiarize you with best practices for designing and teaching 8-week courses, provide a forum for you to collaboratively address challenges and share strategies, and equip you to teach these courses well. Your work in it should take 1-2 hours per week and will culminate with the creation of a schedule for your own 8-week course. The lab is delivered in D2L and models best practices in design and delivery. It launches and wraps up with synchronous Zoom meetings, for which you need to register separately (at the links above).

Document Accessibility

Join this FLC to read and discuss Make It Stick – The Science of Successful Learning by Brown, Roediger, and McDaniel. This book explores learning and memory. We will examine this in our own lives and experiences as well as in the classroom with the students you teach. Brown’s website states that “…Make It Stick turns conventional wisdom on its head, entertains, and offers practical tips to all who are interested in the challenge of lifelong growth and self-improvement.
