Effective, adjective: Successful in producing a desired or intended result. Being an effective teacher means asking how your student learning and experiences met the teaching goals, which starts with measurable, student-centered learning outcomes. These are often challenging to write, yet should be the starting point of any teaching. Participants will need to bring learning outcomes related to teaching they are currently or will soon be doing. Learning outcomes are part of the teaching-as-research process, and this workshop is highly recommended for those considering a Delta internship.
Learning outcome for this workshop: Create realistic well-defined, achievable, measurable and student-centered learning goals for any teaching experience.

Teaching shouldn’t always reinvent the wheel Many others have considered and addressed challenges in student learning and can inform your teaching. This workshop will cover where to search, what search terms to use, what types of questions to ask. Participants will need to bring a laptop or tablet, as well as a learning challenge or question they are interested in, such as the best practices for an activity they are considering, finding an assessment for a course unit they’re teaching, or why a particular concept seems so challenging. Using the educational research literature is part of the teaching-as-research process, and this workshop is highly recommended for those considering a Delta internship.
Learning outcome for this workshop: Find and critically consider the literature and existing knowledge associated with a teaching experience.
