Teaching Circles Registration

On behalf of the Cen­ter for Teach­ing & Learn­ing (CTL), I am pleased to announce the top­ics for Teach­ing Cir­cles, to con­vene over Winter-Spring Quar­ter 2013.  As a reminder, teach­ing cir­cles typ­i­cally com­prise 3–5 inter­de­part­men­tal edu­ca­tors who want to learn together regard­ing a teach­ing, learn­ing, or men­tor­ing topic. Teach­ing Cir­cles are smaller than our Fac­ulty and Pro­fes­sional Learn­ing Com­mu­ni­ties (FPLCs) and are group-driven.  (For more infor­ma­tion, check out our Learn­ing Com­mu­ni­ties site).  Top­ics are:
  • Active Learn­ing Strategies
  • Lead­ing Dynamic Discussions
  • Diver­sity and Inclu­sive Classrooms
  • Assess­ing Stu­dent Learning
  • Ser­vice Learn­ing Pedagogy
  • Schol­ar­ship on Teach­ing and Learning
  • Sup­port­ing Stu­dent Writing
  • Inten­tional Prac­tice and Reflection
(Please note that there are no descrip­tions for these top­ics because these groups have not been formed yet, and each group deter­mines the goals, dis­cus­sions, and activities).
If you would like to par­tic­i­pate in a Teach­ing Cir­cle, please fill out our reg­is­tra­tion WebQ:  https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/thectl/188939
 After gath­er­ing par­tic­i­pant infor­ma­tion, we will form the Cir­cles and con­tact each one to intro­duce mem­bers to each other and pro­vide more guide­lines and expec­ta­tions.  Cir­cles will by informed by the first week of February.
Feel free to con­tact me (Theresa Ron­quillo, tmr51@uw.edu) if you have any ques­tions about Teach­ing Circles.
