Teaching Workshops

iSchool T3 (Teaching Tips & Techniques) Series  

The Series, developed in response to the recommendations that were made in the 2012 iSchool Faculty Technology Use Survey Report, offers faculty training in key areas. The topics were selected from the suggestions made by faculty, and the sessions will be led by colleagues and other professionals who have expertise in the use of existing services and technologies. Plan to join one or more of the T3 Series sessions. All sessions are recorded and available in the T3 Archive located in the Canvas Faculty site.

Instructional Expectations for All Faculty

iSchool Teaching Requirement

In order to ensure that all iSchool teaching faculty keep up their technology skills and provide our students with the best online experience, all faculty who want to continue to teach for the iSchool will be required to attend at least one of the training sessions each semester -- either live or via the recording. We will ask participants of both the live and recorded sessions to complete a feedback form as proof of attending.  You may also complete the T3 requirement by viewing any of the previous sessions that are located in the T3 Archive on the Canvas iSchool Faculty site (and completing a feedback form as proof of attending.)

Upcoming schedule of sessions held live in Bb Collaborate AND eCampus.  The details follow.

Recorded Sessions 2012 - Present

Recordings will be available for anyone who is unable to attend the synchronous sessions. The recorded sessions are available in the iSchool Faculty site in Canvas.

Evaluation/Attendance Form

On completion of the live or recorded Collaborate session you will be directed to an online evaluation form. Completing that form will ensure that you are given credit for participation in one of the sessions, and your input will be used as we plan for future sessions in the T3 Series.

Title: The Art & Science of Reading "Backwards:" Reading for Scholarly Purpose

Presenter: Anthony Bernier

Description: This T3 session criticizes the convention of reading academic writing as if it was a who-done-it novel.  It answers how faculty can help students improve their comprehension of scholarly writing and thus be better able to build upon it.  The presentation will identify common and default student practices, how to decode scholarly discourse, and the top 7 ways reading "backwards" improves critical thinking.
