Morning Grind with the CLTR

Please come join CLTR staff and Colgate colleagues for some coffee and conversation about teaching and learning. The Grind sessions are a bit "open mic" in spirit, and don't tend to have topics identified in advance...but the conversation is always interesting. You can come anytime and stay for as long as you'd like.  

Fall 2022 Morning Grind dates are:

  • September 7, 2022 in McGregory Hall 101A from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.
  • September 27, 2022 in McGregory Hall 101A from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.
  • October 27, 2022 in McGregory Hall 101A from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m.

Teaching Tables

Teaching Tables represent more structured and moderated conversations around specific topics that are brought to the CLTR from faculty, students and staff. If you have a teaching need, wish to explore a new technique, want to hear from a faculty panel on a specific topic, etc. just let us know. You propose the topic and perhaps suggested presenters and we do all the work to set things up. To suggest an idea please email cltr@colgate.edu.

Fall 2022 sessions TBD

Please stay tuned for Teaching Tables this Fall!

Exploring Accessible and Inclusive Teaching Practices
 

How can we create classroom environments that are welcoming to all students? In what ways might course assignments, activities and assessments be designed so that students with diverse learning approaches are able to more fully engage and participate in their educational experiences? What role can technology play in enhancing the accessibility of readings and instructional materials? Universal design for learning can be a helpful entry point for thinking about accessibility and inclusive teaching practices in ways that can support learner diversity and allow students to build on their strengths. At the same time, implementing these instructional approaches can present unique challenges for faculty members. (Session resources linked below).
