CVM Fall 2019 News
Teach-A-Palooza is a series of micro-teaching opportunities for Health Sciences educators to experiment with teaching methods you would use in the active learning classroom. This is a place where you can take risks and try out new materials, strategies, and exercises in a supportive environment and receive constructive feedback from your peers. We encourage you to try something new!
Faculty Support for Active Learning
Active learning can be accomplished in the Active Learning Classroom (ALC – 104 AS/VM) or in any other teaching space. Here is a link to teaching resources for active learning - z.umn.edu/ahcactive

All course sites will be in Canvas starting fall semester 2019. Departmental and central instructional designers will work with course coordinators. Faculty in VBS should work with Daniela Vidovic, those in VCS with Kristy Lashbaugh, and those in VPM with Kelly Vallandingham. Any faculty member may also contact Ryan Rupprecht. In addition to the Canvas basics workshops offerings that continue, AT-OIT, in partnership with User Experience Support, have developed a Discover Canvas workshop series taking place online this summer that will cover more advanced topics. Registration is not yet available, but you can use this form to be notified when registration opens. If you're interested in following information about Canvas, check out the Canvas newsletter. Also see the direct link to information about Canvas on this site (new!).
Put it on your calendar - the College's 2nd annual Education Roundtable will take place October 24, 2019. Topics will include assessment of clinical competence and how to perform and publish educational research.
