After "speedy" introductions and a review of rules and objectives, we will create a working definition of learning-centered teaching. We will also learn how to actively engage students (a) in reviewing a course syllabus and (b) in course readings. If time permits, we will discuss a case study on problems instructors sometimes encounter when trying new teaching strategies. Information on the certificate in higher education program well also shared.
