Teaching Excellence: Your Teaching Philosophy
Tuesday, October 20 • 2–3:30 p.m.

How do you handle late work? What’s your attendance policy? What do you do when you suspect a student of academic dishonesty? Ideally, the answer to each of these quandaries (and many more) should grow out of your core beliefs about teaching and learning. In this workshop, you will explore those core beliefs and consider how best to articulate them … for your own benefit and for the benefit of others who want to know who you are as a teacher. Facilitator: Claire Lamonica, Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology. No registration is necessary.
