Faculty invited to register for Best Practices in University Teaching workshop, June 21-25

Faculty of Johns Hopkins University are invited to attend the Best Practices in University Teaching workshop offered by the JHU Center for Educational Resources (CER). Johns Hopkins faculty and senior leaders will share pedagogical best practices with faculty interested in learning how to become more effective and efficient teachers.

The multiday workshop will occur online from Monday, June 21, through Friday, June 25. The workshop will feature a daily synchronous/live session from 9 to 10:30 a.m. ET, followed by asynchronous sessions and work to be completed daily on your own schedule.

Topics will include an introduction to the science of learning, best practices for designing a course, effective assessment strategies, evidence-based teaching strategies, inclusive pedagogy and universal design for learning, grading and evaluation strategies, and teaching/technology resources used at Johns Hopkins and peer institutions. All sessions will model active-learning strategies. The structured exercises will help participants develop materials for a course they plan to teach in the future. The workshop will be facilitated by Hopkins faculty and staff known for teaching excellence.

We hope you will consider taking advantage of this excellent opportunity.

The workshop fee is covered 100% by the tuition remission benefit available to full-time faculty. Contact Mike Reese (mreese@jhu.edu), the CER director, if you have any questions about the workshop.
