Instructional Development Institute

CATL hosts a series of workshops exploring pedagogical issues, faculty development opportunities, specific challenges in instruction, high-impact practices, and more showcasing the thoughtful minds of our community at work as they grapple with the interesting problems percolating in higher education. The all-day institute is held in January.

January, 2018

This year’s Institute (to be held January 18, 2018) coincides with UW-Green Bay’s “Becoming a Student-Ready University” initiative, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Business and Finance. The morning will kick-off with a special keynote by Dr. Christine Harrington, who will speak to our entire campus community about how small actions can have a big impact on student achievement. She will ask us to consider how student experiences in and out of the classroom make a huge difference in terms of persistence and goal completion, and she will follow-up by encouraging us to discuss the small actions that staff, faculty, and administrators can take to help students meet with success.

Sample topics for sessions may include (but are not limited to): Accessibility or universal design; Growth mindset; Community-based learning; Developing community partnerships; Grant writing ; Learning assessments in large lecture classes; Inclusive pedagogy; Transparency in teaching and learning; Undergraduate research ; Recruitment strategies; Flipped classrooms; Capstone experiences; Student engagement; Information literacy in a digital age; Engaging in difficult dialogues; and MORE!
