Scholars in Teaching & Learning: Enhancing Teaching with Research Heading link

As an instructor, how do you know if your teaching methods are effective in supporting student learning? Instructors can do this by engaging in the reflective teaching process – observing what is going on in their classrooms by collecting data and feedback from students, and planning changes to their teaching based on those observations and data.

This seminar series features speakers who have engaged in this reflective teaching process in a systematic way. They will share their evidence-based innovations in pedagogy and curriculum, education and action research discoveries, and their scholarship in teaching and learning and learning sciences. Topics span diverse disciplines and may be targeted at the undergraduate, graduate or professional student levels. Speakers include colleagues here at UIC as well as outside institutions.

In this hour-long session, participants will learn about various research project findings, and have the opportunity in an interactive part of the session to reflect on and talk to their colleagues about how to apply the scholars’ teaching strategies, research methodology, and/or research findings to their own practice and research. Seminars will be in a synchronous-distributed format: they are  on-campus, in-person events with the option to join online via live streaming. Light refreshments will be provided.

Action Research Scholars

In Fall 2023 the CATE Seminar Series featured the work of experienced UIC instructors who completed the CATE Janet Riddle Action Research Scholars program, a year-long professional learning program investigating how their instructional practices and curriculum impacted the learning experiences of their students in their courses.

Please check back next Fall 2024 for the next set of seminars!
