Ten Time Management Tips for Terrific TeachingWith all of the demands on today’s faculty, this practical and interactive workshop – based on studies on teaching effectiveness, faculty productivity, peak performance, and work-life balance – will help faculty achieve excellence in their teaching while at the same time maintaining their own vitality. Participants will practice simple exercises drawn from ten research-based time-saving practices that promote effective learning. These will include how to prepare for class in one hour or less and how to tame the digital tiger.
You will learn these tips for promoting student learning, saving time, and preventing problems:
