Inclusive Excellence Teaching Institute

Wednesday, May 4 - Friday, May 6, 2016 (NOW FULL)
Wednesday, June 22 - Friday, June 24, 2016

Inclusive excellence refers to the use of pedagogical strategies that address the needs of students with a variety of backgrounds, learning interests, and abilities. These strategies contribute to an overall inclusive learning environment, in which students feel equally valued. In order to provide faculty with an opportunity to learn more about inclusive excellence in teaching and learning, the Pew FTLC is partnering with the Office of Inclusion and Equity to offer Inclusive Excellence Teaching Institute which begins with a 3 day intensive workshop May 4-6, or June 22-24, 2016.

The 18th Annual Teaching Life Retreat
Course Re(Design) and Refresh

Thursday May 19 - Friday May 20
Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, Hastings, MI

Do you plan to work on a course or assignment this summer? Do you have a few ideas - large or small - that would benefit from sustained focus and feedback? In this iteration of the Teaching Life Retreat, we will focus on a course design, redesign or refresh project of your choosing. You will have the opportunity to interact informally with a small group of colleagues from a range of disciplines. Peer feedback and individual consultations with Pew FTLC staff included. Ample time for solitary work is built into the schedule, as well. Participants will be provided with the text, Building a Pathway for Student Learning: A How-to Guide to Course Design, lodging in single rooms and four shared meals at a lovely retreat and nature center. The retreat is limited to 15 participants, with preference given to first-time attenders. We will gather at noon on Thursday, May 19 and conclude by 3pm on Friday, May 20. We ask that those who register stay for the entire retreat. For more details, visit our website. To apply, please send an email to Christine Rener briefly describing the course project you have in mind.
