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. All workshops will be located in the CFE location (202C University Hall) unless otherwise noted.  

*All workshops have been listed in order by date, so make sure to check your calendar.*

NCAT Webinars

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.
