Reinert Center Events

Praxis Workshops

Designed specifically with the objectives of the certificate program in mind, the Reinert Center's Praxis Workshops are interactive sessions during which an expert facilitator designs a learning experience around a particular pedagogical topic that creates the opportunity for participants to explore a new idea, or an established idea in a new way, and reflect on its implications for concrete interactions, approaches, and/or projects for their own specific teaching and learning situations (courses, labs, clinics, etc.) at the university level. While Praxis workshops are developed for participants in our Certificate Program, these workshops are open to all SLU faculty and graduate students.

Introduction to Online Teaching

The Introduction to Online Teaching is a fully-online asynchronous seminar that provides a pedagogical foundation for Saint Louis University faculty who are new to the online teaching environment. The seminar provides faculty an opportunity to gain the experience of an online “student” and to experience a fully-online course that has been designed to align with the University’s Online Course Design Rubric while developing a plan for an online course.

  • February 14 through February 28, 2023 
    (NB: While this session is open to all faculty, A&S faculty who need to meet school requirements for online teaching in the summer or fall 2023 semesters should register for this session)
  • March 21 through April 4, 2023
