Meeting Location: Faculty Center for Teaching & Learning, Crabbe Library 318

Are you interested in improving student learning in the classroom? Have you considered small changes in your teaching  that can enhance how and why students learn across all learners? In this Professional Learning Community (PLC), facilitators introduce transparency in learning and teaching (TILT), discuss strategies for integrating these concepts into the classroom, and facilitate discussion focused on the value of TILT for EKU student learners. Participants will receive a packet of information focused on TILT and resources to use in their classrooms. Through this PLC, participants will apply TILT strategies to specific course materials--syllabi, assignments, rubrics, or other resources--and have the opportunity to draft or revise course documents with support from facilitators. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Participants will Evaluate TILT approaches that best reach student learners;

  2. Explore TILT strategies to engage diverse learners;

  3. Use TILT approaches that enhance teaching and learning for specific student populations; and

  4. Integrate TILT approaches into syllabi, assignments, rubrics, and other teaching and learning resources.  

Reading: Select readings from Winkelmes et al. provided by facilitators
