Inclusive Teaching Workshop Series
OTEI offers a workshop series on inclusivity and active learning, culturally responsive assessment, and teaching inclusive content (this is recommended as a two part session). We are developing "short bites" from this series so that you can bring these topics to a department meeting. Colleges and departments can schedule any of these topics. Contact OTEI to inquire.
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, 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 self-enroll to access this resource.
Gen Z Learning at Clemson: A Student Learning Project
We are moving to phase 3 with a focus on mental health with instructor and acting director of the Pearce Center Ashley Fisk. Fisk's students are working with OTEI as well as Healthy Campus director Jennifer Gore.
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. 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.
