I write to make you aware of a free teaching workshop offered Thursday morning prior to the American Historical Association's Annual Meeting in Denver. Please share with interested colleagues.
Focus on Teaching Pre Conference Workshop Sponsored by the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in History
Thursday, January 5, 2017: 8:30 AM-12:00 PM Mineral Hall B (Hyatt Regency Denver, Third Floor)
Join us for a hands-on workshop informed by the scholarship of teaching and learning in history (SoTL). Participants gain exposure to the field and develop resources to use in their teaching. Two concurrent working sessions are offered; you choose which best fits your needs: 1) (Re)Designing your Introductory Course to Include Historical Thinking or 2) Getting Started with SoTL Projects in Your Classroom. We welcome all history instructors from seasoned college faculty and high school teachers responsible for Advanced Credit surveys, to graduate students preparing to teach their first class. Plan to bring your syllabus or SoTL research project idea. Veteran faculty and SoTL scholars will also be available for individual mentoring sessions throughout the weekend.
No charge for the workshop, but because space is limited, advance registration is required through the AHA Annual Meeting website.
Facilitators include: Flannery Burke, Lendol Calder, Peter Felten, Richard Hughes, David Pace, Leah Shopkow, Joel Sipress, and Laura Westhoff
