The Center for Faculty Excellence strives to provide opportunities for BGSU educators to discuss learner-centered, integrative teaching. We hope that through participation, each educator can develop more pedagogical “capital.” We sincerely invite you to join our community of learners by registering for the discussions/workshops listed below.

The Center for Faculty Excellence will now be showing the following webinars hosted by the National Center for Academic Transformation. Each hour-long webinar will feature an NCAT Redesign Scholar, the project leader of a highly successful course redesign, describing the redesign project with a particular focus on its distinguishing characteristics. After a presentation, the lead faculty member will be available to answer questions and provide additional specifics about the redesign. The following topics and speakers are planned:
12/9/14 at 1 PM EST: Redesigning Fundamentals of Biology at Salisbury University presented by Ron Gutberlet, featuring engagement of students individually and in groups.
Location: CFE Conference Room in 202C University Hall
Seating and registration are limited.
Reacting to the Past
Reacting to the Past is a curriculum that introduces students to major ideas and texts through a role-playing format to replicate the historical contexts in which these ideas acquired significance. These games are interdisciplinary, involving not only humanities but often social science and even STEM topics -- and they require active learning in which the students are motivated to excel. Come visit a session in action, as we explore modernity, equality, art, sexuality, economic thought, and more in Greenwich Village, 1913: Suffrage, Labor, and the New Woman.
Dr. Schocket will be holding class at the CFE (202C University Hall) during the following dates this semester, between 1 – 2:15 (T/R):
- November 18,20,25
- December 2,4,9
Seating will be limited.
