University educators host teaching institute
Explore new methods to become a successful educator inside and outside the classroom through Georgia College’s Innovative Course-building Group (IC-bG) this summer.
The social network of educators will host a one-day Summer Institute, “Improving Student Learning and Faculty Success at All Levels,” at 8 a.m. Friday, June 29 at the university’s Macon Graduate Center.
“The goal of the Summer Institute is for faculty and staff to support development and growth of courses, programs, projects and organizations by addressing issues of teaching and learning at Georgia College and other higher education institutions,” said Dr. Karynne Kleine, professor of Middle Grades Education.
The Summer Institute will provide strategies for effective teaching and learning through interactive, small-group sessions.
Highlights of the institute include the following:
- Addressing learning goals, course activities and assignments and designing an effective syllabus;
- Improving student critical thinking skills and incorporating civic issues into the classroom; and
- Using learning taxonomies to enhance student feedback.
