The conference rooms and hallways of the Center for Teaching and Learning will be abuzz these two weeks as UMinn instructors meet in workshops focused on international course design, on universal design, on using technology as a learning / teaching tool, and as CTL instructors prepare for a new semester of courses and workshops.
Given the atmosphere here, we’ve pulled five “semester starting” posts from the archives in order to bring a bit of that hallway energy into a blog post. So read on, plan well, and add to the comment / reply feature if you have want to make a query along the way.
Here’s to a great semester!
