Best Practices in University Teaching


The Center for Educational Resources is pleased to offer Best Practices in University Teaching: a 1.5 day workshop for faculty. The workshop will present pedagogical best practices used at Johns Hopkins and peer institutions. In a variety of interactive settings, participants will explore such topics as: how students learn, course design, research-based pedagogical strategies, course assessment methods, and effective uses of educational technology. Participants will have an opportunity to develop a peer-reviewed lesson plan that can be applied directly to their own classes.

This is a great opportunity for new faculty who are interested in learning about evidence-based teaching practices.
