Inclusive Teaching Strategies Focus of Faculty Charrette
Natasha Jankowski of the National Center for Learning Outcomes Assessment will be on campus Thursday, Nov. 8, to facilitate an assignment charrette focused on incorporating inclusive teaching strategies. The interactive workshop will be held at the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel and Conference Center from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
An assignment charrette is a collaborative, positive process in which faculty work in small groups to give and receive feedback on an assignment of their choosing within a concentrated time frame. In the charrette, faculty will learn from one another by sharing what they are working on, asking good questions, offering suggestions, and prompting consequential reflection. The goal is for faculty to leave the workshop with ideas and specific strategies for strengthening assignments to create clearer, more powerful pathways for students.
The charrette is sponsored by Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment and the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence. For more information and to register for the event, faculty can visit http://assessment.syr.edu/events/.
