Looking ahead to next semester

Hi all! We hope you survived the Thanksgiving holiday and that you are rested and ready to finish out the semester strong.

While it might seem too early to think about next semester already, we do want to highlight three topics that will be featured in various ways during our CTL programming next semester: hybrid course design, inclusive classrooms, and active learning strategies. These are topics that continue to come up as areas in which faculty want more training–we’ve got you covered!

A few more notes before I sign off for today:

  • If you missed last Monday’s CTL hour on Test/Performance Anxiety with Normandale counselor Kristen Cooper, the materials from that session have been posted on the CTL D2L page. Thanks, Kristen, for sharing your expertise with us!
  • Congratulations to Xiaosheng Li for passing another “Quality Matters” certification for his online Math 2150 course! You can find more information about Quality Matters and what it is here.
  • Thank you to everyone who has posted a conference nametag on our bulletin board in F2201! It’s great to see the topics that faculty are exploring and the places they are visiting. Keep ’em coming 🙂
  • And finally, this week’s Friday Coffee Fix is “Bring Your Own Questions” from 9 am-12 pm and again from 1-3 pm in L1735.

Have a great week everyone!
