CTL New Faculty Retreat


Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 4.20.08 PMThe Center for Teaching and Learning’s New Faculty Retreat is a 5-day program (August 14-18, 2017), devised to help faculty new to BU develop into exceptional teachers by providing them with knowledge, skills, and a supportive community of interdisciplinary peer educators. During the week, faculty will examine the importance of learning objectives, construct course level assessments, employ effective grading strategies, experiment with active learning strategies, develop discipline-specific classroom activities, interact with teaching technologies, develop a complete or near-complete syllabus, discover the science of student motivation and student learning, and explore BU’s teaching resources. The entire week’s schedule is available online for you to preview.
