Faculty Fellows Lounge Trading, Teaching, Tips and Triumphs

Join us for interactive exploration and informal conversation on teaching led by CRTLE Faculty Fellows! Example topics include strategies for teaching with groups/teams, making and using effective assessments, using virtual labs, promoting inquiry teaching, engaging students, implementing technology, and applying various applications in online, hybrid, and F2F teaching.

We also want to hear from you! We invite you to suggest topics to address, offer to share your strategies, and/or ask questions on any teaching topic you would like on the RSVP form. When we are all back on campus we plan to meet in a “real” lounge setting, but for now we will meet in Microsoft Teams!
