On Friday, January 27th the TLC invites you to an all-day faculty conference to build on the momentum from Maryellen Weimer’s visit. Presenters will discuss a wide range of classroom strategies that focus teaching on a larger question - not just what students know, but what they can do with what they know.
- CMU’s climate for teaching and learning
- Designing assessment tools to develop learning skills
