Professional Development Experiences for Educators

DELTS is offering several professional development experiences during the fall semester of the 2014-15 academic year that highlight teaching practice and current issues in teaching and learning. These professional development experiences are open to faculty, per course instructors, instructional staff, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Professional development experiences will be offered using a variety of strategies (face-to-face sessions and online) to help participants assess content and participate in the experiences. Some of the topics covered are offered in multiple learning experiences. Participants can take part in just one or all of the learning experiences offered in a topic, and can pick and choose from the various learning experiences in multiple topics in order to meet their professional development needs.

The topics of our experiences for the fall 2014 semester are listed below. Click on each topic name to get more information about the topic, the concepts to be covered in the experiences, and the mode of delivery, date, time and location.
