Efficient Ways to Improve Student Writing

Tips for Teaching this Fall During a Pandemic »

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 upheaval, we need to be flexible with our students and with ourselves about our expectations of what our courses look like and accomplish. I found this article in The Chronicle to be an insightful read on the upshot of teaching during a pandemic.  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.

"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:
