(Feel free to include a short video or a few graphics that helps you make your point.)Review the evaluation rubric. (Are you addressing salient points? What are your teaching methods exemplary?)Refer to evidence. (Include specific evidence to support your claims, and point to that evidence in your narrative.)Focus on the lived experience rather than static course design. (What do you do as an instructor? How do students respond to what you do?)Recorded SessionThe Presenters Alisha Janowsky, Ph.D.Associate Lecturer, Assistant Chair, & Director of the Undergraduate Program Department of Psychology College of Sciences Amanda Groff, Ph.D.Associate Lecturer & Online Undergraduate CoordinatorDepartment of Anthropology College of Sciences Presentation FilesPresentation File [PDF; 922KB]Session Resources:The Chuck D.
