Teaching that Sticks! Workshop & Donuts

Date: Thursday, August 11, 2011
Time: 9:00 am to 10:00 am
Location: STSS 432B

Want a bit of inspiration for your instruction for fall semester?  Join consultants from the Center for Teaching and Learning for a workshop on approaches to teaching for long-term learning. Based on Dan and Chip Heath's bestselling book, Made to Stick, we will begin with the premise that real learning involves not just memory and understanding but also transformation. We'll discuss the Heaths' strategy for presenting ideas that stick and generate ways to apply it in your instruction. You'll leave with immediately usable ideas to refine your instruction sessions.

Designing Exhibits with Impact

Date: Thursday, August 18, 2011
Time: 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Location: Andersen Library 120

What does it take to make a really compelling exhibit--from a small display case to a large room? Exhibits can be great instructional and outreach tools and whether you've done many exhibits or considering your first one the task can be challenging. This hands-on workshop will explore the conceptual phases of refining an idea, identifying your audience, and selecting content to the practical considerations of mounting an exhibit. Presented by Archives and Special Collections staff, Darren Terpstra, Stephanie Crowe, and Ryan Bean.
