Registration for this Winter Enrichment Session is now closed

New faculty enter the classroom as experts in their field, but not necessarily as experts in teaching. Before they begin a new semester or year of teaching, new faculty members need quality training that introduces or enhances their understanding of key pedagogical principles and concepts.

Presented by James M. Lang, PhD, an experienced Professor and Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College, Principles of Effective College Teaching is an asynchronous 10-hour course that will give new faculty, graduate students, teaching assistants, and other instructors the knowledge and confidence they need to be successful in the classroom from the very first day of the semester.

After completing Principles of Effective College Teaching, educators will:

  • Know how to design courses and construct meaningful and effective learning objectives
  • Be able to identify opportunities for incorporating instructional technology, eliciting peer feedback, and adopting active learning strategies in the classroom
  • Recognize common warning signs that can lead to classroom problems— before they get out of hand
  • Understand their role in motivating and engaging students, promoting deep learning, and guiding student development
  • Have the confidence and skills to control the classroom
  • Know where and how to seek information and resources when they run into challenges

You can complete this course at your own pace and access it from virtually any device. It’s convenient professional development that’s equally valuable for individual learners and institutional learning communities.

This asynchronous course comes with a variety of supplemental materials to support the content, including full transcripts, links to online resources, suggested readings, and handouts. You’ll also find a final check on learning that leads to a certificate of completion.
