CATL on the MOO-ve: Spring 2023 College Office Hours

CATL will be trying something a bit different this semester by bringing our services directly to instructors. One of our instructional designers, instructional technologists, or our Canvas administrator will be holding office hours for 2 hours per week in each of the four colleges on the Green Bay campus. We will be in CAHSS and CSET on Mondays, in the Cofrin School of Business on Tuesdays, and in CHESW on Wednesdays. In some colleges we’ll be in the same office from week to week. In others we will move around from week to week because their instructors’ offices are located in multiple buildings. We’ll post our location in Teach Tuesday each week and also keep this blog page up-to-date. Please stop by and see us – no appointment necessary!

Writing Effective and Reflective Teaching Philosophies (Oct. 21, 9:30 a.m.)

Teaching philosophies. We may think of them when required to write one for a job application or promotion file—or maybe you haven’t touched your teaching philosophy since graduate school. But there are many reasons educators can benefit from writing—and revisiting—a teaching philosophy. Teaching philosophies help us to reflect upon and articulate our ideas about what makes for effective teaching. And doing so helps to ensure that what we do in our classes is consistent with those beliefs and promotes student learning. In this workshop, we will share some basics of developing a teaching philosophy, including the components that can effectively illustrate your values as a teacher and the details of how you’ve enacted and evolved your craft. Join us for our open exchange of ideas this Friday, October 21, from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., in the CATL Conference Room (CL 405) or via Zoom.
