Welcome Back!

Welcome to Fall 2017!  It’s been a productive summer in the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. As you prepare for this fall, a few ideas:

  1. Consider how to engage your students in your course, by inviting them as learners and clarifying expectations. We have many first-generation students attending UW – S, and even those who have family members with college degrees struggle with learning the context of a new place, new instructors, and new courses. Maryellen Weimer utilizes a memo to her students to set the tone for her classroom which is inviting and creates accountability for students.

  2. Review the newly revised Student Attachment, to be included in your syllabus. Newly revised, it provides students with information in three areas: programs supporting students’ identities and characteristics, academic integrity, and campus policies. – 2017-18 Syllabus Attachment for students
  3. Review the syllabus template. Dean Yohnk shared in an earlier campus email that this template is being piloted this fall and required for use in a year. UW – S syllabus template, pilot release Aug 2017
