The TLC Responds to Maryellen Weimer
Friday, January 27
8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

In October, the TLC welcomed Maryellen Weimer to campus to give several presentations based on her 2013 publication, Learner-Centered Teaching. Following her practical and insightful workshops, faculty discussed strategies to improve students’ engagement, skill, and independence as learners. 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. 

Conference Themes

  • CMU’s climate for teaching and learning 
  • Designing assessment tools to develop learning skills 
  • Tech tools and active learning 
  • Learner-centered resources from the Quality Initiative
