The first week of Spring Semester 16′ is in the bag and you are looking towards a great semester. We hope the Center for Teaching and Learning can help. Is there a campus-wide teaching topic you’d like to see for a college hour event? Would you like to host a faculty roundtable about an event? Contact your division rep and we’ll help you make it happen.

The (new) Remark Scanner allows me to do WHAT?! Really?
Dave Lake (of the Psychology Department) has graciously offered to demonstrate the many types of data the new Remark Scanner allows us to gather (compared to the older Scantron machine) and other useful features; the session is this Friday, January 22, 2016, in room L1747, from 2 to 3 p.m.
(Our goal is to offer this information early enough to be useful this spring term. More data, easier to use for importing grades and “fixing” glitches!)
Brooks Herboldt and Kurt Burch will host three faculty rountables at 2 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month (with one exception on March 2nd).
February 2: Cheating in online courses, S 2312
March 2nd: Introducing college norms to incoming students. C 2116
April 5: How to conduct online office hours, S 2312
Teaching around the web
The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy released their 8th issue on “Disability Studies Approaches to Pedagogy, Research, and Design.”
From the Faculty Focus blog, “Becoming a Better Teacher: Articles for New and Not-So-New Faculty.”
Did you know the Journal of Microbiology and Biology Education is free? For science professors of many disciplines, interesting research on teaching. Hat tip to Carrie Ketel Opheim.
Did you know we have a Digital Public Library of America?
