What should you do if you can’t make a meeting?

I had a participant ask me this question and thought it would be useful to post to the blog.  The series of workshops we will engage in over the course of the academic year build upon each other, so we recommend that you attend every session.  That said we know that our academic schedules are busy and missing one might be unavoidable.

Each workshop will be led by two of our mentors, which helps us to distribute the workload and gives you the opportunity to interact with all of us.  If you have to miss a session, please contact the workshop leaders to make arrangements:

  • 18 Oct 10 (Mon) – Introduction/Identify problems & courses (Amy & Julia)
  • 08 Nov 10 (Mon) – Write Course Goals (Sandra & George)
  • 24 Jan 11 (Mon) – Aligning activities to course goals & Engaging with active learning (Liz & Joanne)
  • 11 Feb 11 (Fri) – Build Assessment Strategies that work for you (Caralyn & Karynne)
  • 14 Mar 11 (Mon) – Design an effective course syllabus (Julia & Kim)
  • 11 Apr 11 (Mon) – Reflect, Socialize and present final course (all mentors)

To contact a leader, just click on their name below:
