Theories and Issues in Postsecondary Teaching and Learning: Postdoctoral Scholars

By way of registering in this workshop, you are committing to attend all 4 sessions of this series.  Key concepts, theories and issues informing postsecondary teaching and learning will be explored through reading and discussing the work of influential authors in the field. This cohort based component will also provide opportunities for participants to lead their peers in interactive sessions and to gather and reflect upon feedback on their teaching. 

At the end of this series of workshops participants will be able to:

  • Engage in collaborative, critically reflective conversations with colleagues to explore current issues, theories and research in postsecondary education

  • Practice peer teaching, and collecting and responding to feedback from colleagues

All workshops will take place in Learning Studio C. The dates and topics of the workshops are as follows:
