AeL: Call for Applications

We are excited to share some news with the campus regarding a change to AeL we are piloting. This Summer we will be offering three discreet one week sessions during the 2017-18 AY (June, August, January) instead of one three-week session in June. The three-week model of AeL has been successful, but last year we received more applications than we could accommodate. We are offering this pilot as a way to meet the increased demand for collaboration focused on teaching improvement.

June 1-2, 5-7: Teaching with Help: Working with TAs, Student Mentors, and Supplemental Instruction
August 2-3, 7-9: Teaching Writing
January 8-12 (tentative): To Be Announced

This model will allow us to work with more faculty and accommodate their demanding schedules. These one-week sessions are focused on teaching improvement rather than wholescale course redesign, but small changes can produce big results. We look forward to working with faculty and continuing to evolve our programming to better serve the campus.

You can find the application HERE.
