The 2017 Winter Faculty Institute will kick off with a featured guest workshop by Michele DiPietro, co-author of How Learning Works: 7 Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching. The book was listed at No. 3 on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s “Top 10 Books on Teaching” list.
DiPietro’s session will launch the institute’s theme of “Inclusion. Engagement. Transformation… by Design.” This event will focus on creating courses that allow all students to succeed, by using high-engagement strategies, innovative classroom technology, inclusive teaching principles, and high quality, affordable materials.
To help participants get the most from the Winter Faculty Institute, How Learning Works will be the featured December selection for the Faculty Commons Book Club. The meeting for this book club will be Tuesday, Dec. 13, from noon-1 p.m. in Morris Library Room 116A. Please note that this is a change from the usual location. Drinks and dessert will be provided.
The UD Library is providing four books for the early book club registrants. These limited free copies of the book will be awarded based upon the first registrations and winners will be contacted via email.
