What is the Teaching Academy? Choose a course to design or redesign, then join your colleagues for 3 half days of sharing ideas and working through creating a course that fits your content, your students, and your teaching style.  Come with materials and be ready to work!

August Workshops:

A variety of 50 min sessions during the first week of contract featuring one small change you could make in your teaching to enhance student learning, to be more efficient with your time, or to better organize your resources.
