Workshop Blitz & Computerized Testing Center

Workshops

To help prepare for spring semester, the Center for Teaching and Learning will hold a total of eight faculty workshops during the week of January 7 -11.  This workshop blitz includes not only sessions targeting best practices in Canvas, but also use of clickers and video.  Faculty can sign up directly from the CTL Website.

Testing Center

The computerized testing center in Rekhi Hall is now scheduling spring term exams for any interested faculty.  The 40 seat center requires instructors to provide their own proctors but has been used for courses with up to 200 students, who take the exam in groups.  The CTL will help faculty understand the process and can help faculty draw  from a wide variety of question types (even essay and calculation questions) to build exams.   A meeting of all those interested in using the center will be scheduled during the week of Jan. 8.   Interested faculty should contact Mike Meyer (487-2046, or mrmeyer@mtu.edu) by Jan. 8 to be included in this conversation.

Walk-In Hours

CTL walk-in hours will be held as usual throughout the break EXCEPT on scheduled holidays AND December 27 and 28.   We are located on the second floor of the library and encourage you to stop in and let us help you get ready for next semester!
