Align Your Vision of Student and Instructor Success with Evidence-based Teaching Practices
A google search for "how to be an effective teacher" provides 2,970,000,000 results, a daunting number that is impossible to navigate. This workshop will guide you through a process to determine exactly what you value as an educator, what you most want for your students (and for yourself) and connect this vision to the Teaching Effectiveness Framework. You will leave the workshop with evidence-based teaching practices unique to your vision for student (and instructor) success.
Developed at The Institute of Learning and Teaching at Colorado State University, the Teaching Effectiveness Framework is comprised of seven essential, interrelated domains of effective teaching practices—for face-to-face and online instruction—grounded in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The framework includes leveled criteria within each domain, a goal-setting process, a collection of teaching practices to improve student learning, and materials for instructors and administrators to measure growth in teaching effectiveness.
- Learning objectives for this workshop include:
- Recognize the benefits of the seven Teaching Effectiveness Framework domains, their independence, interdependence, and how inclusive pedagogy is foundational to being an effective teacher
- Identify their teaching strength related to a Teaching Effectiveness Framework domain
- Create their vision for student (and instructor) success
- Analyze how their current teaching practices align with their vision for students
This workshop is open to all CSU graduate students, faculty, and staff. Lunch will be provided.
