The recent SMHS TLAS faculty development needs assessment survey revealed productivity and organization as universal challenges, and it is easy to see why. Increased demands placed on us by remote access, technology, and demands outside of work such as homeschooling and family care have all made it hard to meet our professional responsibilities as educators without sacrificing quality of learning. Remote teaching takes extra time, and hybrid or HyFlex teaching can feel like twice the effort for half the result, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Long before Covid-19, Dr. Adrienne Salentiny became interested in finding efficiencies in the design and delivery of high-quality active learning. Join her for this workshop to learn practical, applied techniques for managing the chaos without sacrificing quality:

  • Design active learning by being pro-active rather than re-active.
  • Apply active learning principles such as peer review and student-led discussion that increase student learning and let you use your time more effectively.
  • Learn productivity tips, tricks, and easy-to-use tools for creating efficiencies.
  • Hear how your peers are managing their short- and long-term goals.

Come ready to discuss your challenges. We will work together to solve them!

This faculty development session is part of the Evidence-Based Teaching (EBT) series hosted by the Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship unit of Education Resources and the Office of Education and Faculty Affairs of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. This series, held every third Thursday of the month, showcases topics of interest to the medical and health education community and is free and open to anyone at UND. Previous faculty development sessions can be streamed from our website.
