Workshops

    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:

10/14/14 at 1 PM EST: Redesigning The Economic System at Buffalo State College presented by Bill Ganley, featuring the effective use of undergraduate learning assistants in an introductory economics course.

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.
