LEARN Center

Resources for moving your class

As you work to prepare course and instructional materials to be delivered online or via other remote means, know the LEARN Center is here to support you with any questions you may have in regards to pedagogical questions and considerations of best practices. Please also remember that in this time of lightning speed transition, we need to be flexible with our students and with our expectations of what our courses look like and accomplish. I found Kevin Gannon's article in The Chronicle to be a brief and approachable look at how to take the next steps to moving courses online.  For resources and tools to use for this transition, please refer to ICIT's page on working, teaching, and learning remotely: https://www.uww.edu/icit/remote.


The LEARN Center and the LTC are co-hosting a weekly opportunity to share some quick tips around emerging alternative delivery teaching topics and facilitate a conversation where instructors can reflect on their remote teaching, share challenges, and exchange ideas. Each weekly episode will be recorded and added to the Teaching Remotely website for those who may not be able to participate and would like to watch it at a later time. 


Please join us for Teaching Talk – Episode 1: First Week of Alternative Delivery on Friday, April 3, from 1-2 p.m. herehttps://uww.webex.com/meet/webern

 

Registering on the signup tool is appreciated, but not required.


"Enhancing student learning through the ongoing development of faculty and staff"

The Learning Enhancement, Assessment and Research Network (LEARN) Center was established in 1998 to assist faculty and academic teaching staff in their ongoing work to better serve our students. Designed and directed by faculty and academic teaching staff, the LEARN Center provides a variety of programs, services, and resources that invite colleagues to learn from experts, explore important issues, share instructional ideas, examine research relevant to teaching and student learning, and develop relationships with colleagues from across campus. While the emphasis of the LEARN Center is on teaching and learning, we also seek to provide services relevant to enhancing research and service activities.

Since its inception, LEARN Center programming has resulted in more than 5,000 contacts with the university's approximately 400 faculty and full-time instructional staff, engaging them in more than 13,700 hours of instructional/professional development.

We invite you to take advantage of the Center's many programs, and please let us know how we're doing:
