Upcoming Events at the Center for Teaching and Learning
"Open Hours" every Monday 11a-1p. Bring your lunch and come talk to CTL staff about teaching, technology or teaching research.
Sakai Plus - Every Thursday at 4p CTL staff is available to assist you with your Sakai course. Stop by!
Poll Everywhere - The Internet and smart phones have greatly improved options for student responses and polling, allowing us to move away from the hand-held devices. Come learn about Poll Everywhere, a web-ased poling tool that students can use via texting messaging or the Internet. We will also discuss how polling can be used for discussion generation, a quick-check of student learning, and exam review.
