Spring Has Sprung!

The Spring Quarter - that is, our last quarter at Ohio State - is now upon us! We invite you to get the quarter off to a good start by registering for some of our spring events. Here are some highlights:

Our College Teaching Series will take you through the process of designing assignments, quizzes, and tests through grading them fairly and efficiently.

Writing Across the Curriculum will provide guidance on creating a more dynamic classroom community through writing. Learn to create opportunities for collaboration, group work, and peer review, and gain some tips on how to use writing to enhance class discussion and participation.

We're also partnering with several groups across campus to sponsor a campus visit from sustainability scholar David Orr of Oberlin College, and we're excited to announce that registration is open for this year's Academy of Teaching mini-conference: The Last Quarter: Preparing to Teach in Semesters.

What better time than now to finally participate in one of our Course Design Institutes? As you revamp your course for semesters, or perhaps plan to create a brand new one, consider joining an interactive, intimate community of others across campus who are trying to accomplish the same goal.

Read about these events and more, and gain some tips on teaching in semesters, by reading the online version of our quarterly Events on Teaching newsletter.

Register for any events that pique your interest at our website: http://ucat.osu.edu.
