The Teaching and Learning Resources group organizes faculty conferences and events on teaching and learning, and provides hands-on workshops as well as individual faculty consultations on pedagogy and instructional technology.
Events and Programs
The TLR Group organizes a variety of events for faculty throughout the year, including the Teaching, Research and Technology Workshops, held every August, the Ann Ferren Conference, held every January, Noontime Conversations on key issues in education, held three times per semester, and New Faculty Orientations preceding the fall, spring and summer semesters. The TLR Group also coordinates the Greenberg Seminars for graduate students considering a teaching career, and the AU Entrée Workshops for first and second-year full-time faculty.
As a professor, do you teach in an environmentally friendly way? If you model this to your class or ask your students to reflect upon their own actions and choices, you may qualify to be a certified "Green Teacher," joining more than 300 AU faculty who have been certified.
Workshops and Tutorials
Through the Technology in the Classroom Series, the TLR Group offers hands-on workshops on the pedagogical use of digital media in the classroom. These workshops are held throughout the year. Our staff also provides individual consultations and one-one-one tutorials on teaching pedagogy, instructional technology, and teaching-related computer software.
