Workshops

August Teaching Enrichment Series

The August 2013 Teaching Enrichment Series provides two days of workshops designed to address a range of instructional experiences and goals. All members of the University teaching community are welcome. The TES will take place August 27-28 and offered concurrent workshops from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. each day.

Just in Time Teaching

This year, we’re offering two types of sessions: stand-alone, practical discussions of timely teaching topics, and a series of four one-hour sessions that take you through the course design process.

Fine Tune Your Accent

In this workshop series, international faculty, scholars, and graduate students will uncover the nuances of English pronunciation that effectively convey meaning in U.S. academic settings: fluency, emphasis, and tone of voice. Participants will learn and practice research-based speaking strategies to enhance classroom teaching and conference presentations.

Individual language consultations are also available on a free and confidential basis to members of the University of Minnesota teaching community.

Navigating U.S. Academic Culture

In this workshop series designed for international faculty, scholars, and graduate students, we will discuss how differences in educational culture impact academic communication. Participants will learn and practice nuanced communication strategies that work in the U.S. multicultural academic environment.

Teaching Enrichment Videos

The Center for Teaching and Learning's August Teaching Enrichment Series offers workshops designed to address a range of instructional experiences and goals. All members of the University teaching community are welcome, but no need to wait until next August – now several of the workshops are available as video presentations.

Diversity in the Curriculum: Transforming Your Syllabus

Have you wanted to change aspects of your course to better reflect changes in your field and scholarship addressing diverse communities? The Office for Equity and Diversity (OED) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invite faculty to engage in a hands-on, two-part workshop where they can revise syllabi or specific segments of courses to include more consideration of diversity and make their courses more attractive to diverse students on our campus.
