Inclusive Teaching Workshop Series
OTEI will be offering this series again this year, on these topics: inclusivity and active learning; culturally responsive assessment; and teaching inclusive content (this is recommended as a two part session). Colleges and departments can schedule any of these topics. We are developing "short bites" from this series so that you can bring these topics to a department meeting!
Teaching with Transparency
The Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation offers training in a national program called TILT: Transparency in Learning and Teaching Project to Clemson; the TILT Higher Education initiative is directed by Dr. Maryanne Winkelhmes and supported by the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).TILT assists instructors of all ranks in learning about and incorporating new, evidenced-based ideas into their teaching practice.
Clemson TILT supports ClemsonElevate through assisting instructors in offering clear paths to student learning. Participants will commit to making small instructional changes in a course during the academic year.
A current focus for Clemson TILT is Assignment Design, especially Signature Assignments in General Education. In collaboration with Dr. Bridget Trogden, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies, we offer a Learning-Focused Assignment Design course. You can self-enroll at any time.
Engaging all Learners through Universal Design for Learning and Teaching
Engaging all Learners through Universal Design for Learning and Teaching Facilitated, asynchronous Canvas course. This course distills the UDL approach into manageable chunks and provides practical teaching advice to implement. You can also self-enroll to access this resource.
Gen Z Learning at Clemson: A Student Learning Project
We are moving to phase 2: students as partners! The goal of this multi-year project is to capture the current state of academic learning at Clemson, highlight and communicate the teaching and learning practices most beneficial to today’s student, and project future directions for course-based learning. The SLP empowers students to take part in the discussions about their formal education at Clemson. Our intern this fall is assisting us through her research efforts.
You can locate the 2018 Gen Z results and resources from students this page on our current "Gen Z" students
Resources are posted from a student research project covering three semesters of information gathering. Find information on active learning, learning preferences and other topics from Clemson students. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an offering for your college or department.
