Academy of Teaching Scholars Competency: Instructional Strategies

Online ,Zoom

Presenter(s): Jessica Alexander and Douglas Jerolimov
Audience: Faculty, staff, and learners


Getting students to come to class prepared can be a challenge, but it is essential to making productive use of class time. Learning increases when students prepare for class meetings and, in turn, helps students see the value of assuming responsibility for their learning. This session will introduce instructional strategies to guide students’ pre-class learning, making explicit the relevance pre-class work and its assessment to student learning outcomes.

This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the webinars are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
