Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence offers inclusion, grading workshops

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence will present the following free workshops:

"Teaching so all your students are included"

Noon-1:15 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 11, in 315 Rider Building, University Park

Students and instructors all bring unique personal histories to the classroom. One of teachers' many responsibilities is to make sure that classes are places where all students — regardless of their backgrounds or identities — feel welcome to learn.

In this workshop, facilitated by Wideline Seraphin, Sara Cavallo and Chas Brua, we'll talk about practical strategies for teaching inclusively.

This workshop satisfies a requirement for the Instructional Foundations Series for new instructors.

"Grading efficiently and effectively"

10-11:15 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 12, in 315 Rider Building, University Park

Do you find grading to be time-consuming and frustrating? Do you spend hours writing comments on student papers, but feel doubtful that your comments are implemented, or even read?

In this workshop, led by Michael Murphy, Wideline Seraphin and Sara Cavallo, we'll discuss time-saving strategies, ways to ensure fairness, and strategies for providing meaningful feedback.

This workshop satisfies a requirement for the Instructional Foundations Series for new instructors.
