CTL Lunch and Learn: JED Campus

A comprehensive team of staff and faculty have been studying student mental health at Michigan Tech for over a year now as part of the JED Campus program.  Leaders from this team will explain the JED process and share some of what they’ve learned along with proposed interventions.  They’ll also provide insight and advice for instructors who are working with a growing number of students faced with mental health challenges.  This event is Tuesday November 12, 2019 at 12 noon.

CTL Instructional Award Presentation Series: Paul Charlesworth, Large Class Teaching Award

In the second presentation of our fall award series, Paul will chat about some of the blended approaches he uses in his large first year chemistry classes.  These include aspects of using a semi-flipped style, online homework through canvas, daily textbook problems, changing from three hour-exams and a final to four hour-exams, and working with the Wahtera Center to try and improve student success.  Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from an instructor with a long track record of success teaching some of the largest sections on campus!
