Join faculty from Saunders College of Business (SCB) for this two-day intensive workshop specifically tailored for improving teaching and student learning at RIT. In-depth sessions will emphasize the following topics: Effective Teacher Attributes, Writing Learning Objectives, Designing Effective Presentations, Active Learning Groups, and Assessment.

After the 2-day program, participants will be able to:

  • Develop presentation objectives at all learning levels.
  • Design frameworks that help students see the interconnectedness of the course material.
  • Design hooks that motivate students and establish subject relevance.
  • Use the seven pillars to clarify and simplify their presentations.
  • Use active learning groups to achieve higher-level learning.
  • Design either effective short-answers essay questions that require critical thinking or design effective stems or distractors that test-wise students cannot “break.”
This workshop is co-hosted by SCB and Faculty Career Development Services (FCDS).
