Teaching at UCLA: Exploring Approaches to Enhance Student Learning

April 14 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

UCLA’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching is hosting an all-day, campus-wide teaching symposium on April 14th, 2020 at the UCLA Faculty Center. Our goal is to learn from each other about teaching practices that can enhance student learning. This will be accomplished through:

        • Short “lightning talks” by UCLA faculty and graduate students who have engaged in innovative instruction. General themes of the talks include Enabling Students to Tackle Complexity, Engaging Students in Large Lectures and GE Courses, and Making Student Learning Visible to Improve Teaching.
        • A faculty panel on using student feedback, peer observation, and self-reflection to improve teaching.
        • A panel of undergraduate students discussing teaching practices that best enable them to learn.

Please RSVP by Friday, March 27 to join us for this important showcase, conversation, and exchange of ideas!
