CATL workshops on decoding the disciplines – March 9 & 31

Join this workshop to learn about a simple strategy for approaching challenges in teaching and student learning.

Decoding the Disciplines: A Two-Part Series
Monday, March 9, 12:15-1:25 p.m., The Root
and Tuesday, March 31, 12:30-1:45 p.m., The Root

“Decoding the Disciplines” is a simple, powerful technique for understanding common “bottlenecks” to student learning – and for developing teaching techniques that help students through those bottlenecks. Faculty at Indiana University created Decoding to address persistent teaching challenges, and their work has enhanced student learning in individual courses and throughout certain departments (for example, see this article from The Chronicle).

In this two-part series, participants will:
(1) Read about and discuss how individual faculty can use decoding to work on your own teaching and your students’ learning – on Monday, March 9, 12:15-1:25 p.m.;
(2) Read about and discuss how groups of faculty can use decoding to work together on common “bottlenecks” in a major, minor, or course – on Tuesday, March 31, 12:30-1:45 p.m.

Lunch is provided. Please register for one or both sessions by Monday, March 2.
