Collaborative Learning Seminar

The Collaborative Learning Seminar is a series of four sessions that explore small group learning activities and the instructional methods and technologies that support them. Working in groups, participants experience various cooperative interactions and support each other’s exploration of collaborative learning. By the end of the seminar, each participant will have designed a collaborative learning activity linked to learning objectives that will be ready to run with students or show to colleagues. Apply by October 16!

Dates: October 22, October 29, November 12, and November 19
Time: 4:10 PM – 6:00 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library

Designing and Using Effective Rubrics

Considering ways to make your assessments more equitable and streamline the grading process? This session will introduce rubrics as a tool for equitable and efficient assessment. Participants will learn to apply an inclusive teaching lens to assessment design and feedback delivery through the development of rubrics. Participants will explore three types of rubrics and try their hand at developing an inclusive rubric for assessing student participation—an area often assessed, but at risk of being inconsistent or following opaque criteria.

Date: Tuesday, October 8
Time: 10:10 AM – 11:40 AM
Location: 203 Butler Library

Teacher’s Lounges: Accessibility in Teaching and Learning

Teachers’ Lounges are a series of informal discussions about teaching practices and the culture of learning at Columbia. Teachers’ Lounges this year will consist of a series of conversations about what it means to make teaching and learning more accessible within a class. Providing multiple ways for students to engage with course materials and register their learning is an important inclusive teaching practice. This year’s discussions will help us consider aspects of accessibility in learning environments and share tactics for flexible instruction.

Upcoming Lounges:
Wednesday, October 9: Learning Preferences and Universal Design
Wednesday, November 6: Banning, Allowing, and Needing Devices in the Classroom 

Time: 12:10 PM – 1:25 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library
