Each semester faculty and staff gather to discuss student learning challenges and achievements and collaborate on using direct measure data to close the assessment loop. Beginning in Fall 2018, we invite you to enrich our discussions by sharing how you bridge classroom assessment data to REX resources to deepen your insights about student success. Join your colleagues to discuss how you have improved student learning through evidence-based interventions—share your data and analysis, learn new ideas, and reflect on program- and institutional-level interventions. Bring your examples, questions, suggestions, and challenges to discuss with colleagues; in exchange, discover new tools, ideas, processes, and the kinds of action research questions being explored across campus.

Lunch will be provided to all registered participants, please click “I Can Attend” below to reserve your seat for this session.

UMBC’s Faculty Development Center continues the Leadership & Teaching Series launched in March 2018!

Sessions in this series are designed to help you to reflect on challenges in teaching facing higher education and how you, in your role as a formal or informal leader at UMBC, can contribute to innovative solutions. Faculty and staff colleagues will address specific challenges in interactive presentations designed to help you explore key questions, for example,

  • How can you use research to improve teaching, learning, and curriculum design?
  • How can you connect to other teaching leaders to identify common challenges and devise shared solutions?
  • How can you contribute to a collaborative culture of evidence-based teaching to improve student learning?
  • How can you identify policies, processes, and technologies that make it easier to gather and use evidence of student learning?
Who should attend?
  • Chairs, deans, graduate program directors, and others in formal leadership roles
  • Faculty and staff with informal leadership roles or who aspire to be campus leaders
