Teaching Today's Students
During the 2014-2015 academic year, the Paul C. Reinert, S.J. Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning will offer a series of programs highlighting considerations, rewards, and challenges of Teaching Today's Students. We will focus on a broad range of topics, including: understanding who "today's students" are, fostering self-directed learning, promoting higher-order thinking, creating inclusive learning environments, teaching international students, and many others. We'll also highlight different aspects of the theme in our weekly blog.
Below are the planned events for fall 2014. New events will be announced for spring 2015 later this year.
