This spring our theme will be evidence-based teaching in practice. We will divide the term into two-week segments; in the first week of each segment we will read about and discuss a topic or technique, and in the second we will either try it out ourselves or talk with a guest who uses the technique in their own teaching. We offer two sessions to choose from each week; content will usually be the same for both. We invite participants from all ranks and disciplines to join the whole series or stop by for a specific conversation.
This week we continue our segment on Transparent Teaching. Please bring with you to journal club paper copies of two assignments that you have given your students or that you have been assigned in a class. In addition, please read the guidelines for transparency from the UNLV website:
