Pratt’s Center for Teaching and Learning invites all faculty to attend any or all of the scheduled sessions of the Tuesday Teaching Tune Up Series this Spring.
These informal one-hour conversations will address important topics in pedagogy, classroom engagement, group facilitation, student feedback, and building clear, inclusive, and effective assignments.
Although we’ll start by introducing the concepts of feedback, assessment, and course design, these Tuesday Tune Ups are meant for educators at any point in their careers and when possible, will include some syllabus re-working, some resources for further investigation, and plenty of productive conversations.

“Universal Design for Learning”

RSVP is strongly recommended
In order to best prepare for these sessions, it would ideal if you RSVPd ahead of time. If there are any last minute changes in your schedule, of course, you can drop-in.
Part time faculty who attend any 4 Tune Up sessions during the Spring 2020 semester will receive a certificate and a $400 stipend, which will be processed at the last session.
