Prior Knowledge poster

Activating Students' Prior Knowledge: One of three Micro Workshops on Monday, October 21, at noon.

Your time is precious. We know that. So the staff at the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology has developed a series of quick, 20-minute Micro Workshops.

Each one covers a single topic, focusing on a way that you can improve your teaching in the classroom and beyond. As always, these sessions are free to faculty, staff, and graduate students, and no advance registration is required.

So, you’re invited to come over to the ITDC Building (our home base, next door to Jimmy John’s on South Main Street) at noon Monday, October 21. For the hour, we’ll be offering three Micro Workshops, back-to-back. Come for one or more of these great sessions:
