ALC Fellows Program - Summer 2017

Applications are now open for the Summer 2017 cohort of Active Learning Classroom Fellows. Applications close on April 7, 2017 with formal notifications on or before April 14, 2017. Fellows who teach in the ALC - Langsam 462 are supported by a cohort of current and previous ALC faculty as well as the Center. Fellows receive training on using the space and meet throughout the semester as a cohort to discuss how they are exploring the space and approaches that meet the needs of today’s students.

Early Term Feedback (ETF)

Early Term Feedback (ETF) provides student input early in the semester, so that instructors have the opportunity to reinforce course strengths and make quick adjustments to enhance student learning. ETF is a formative assessment tool -- in essence, a short survey -- that allows you to engage students, address relevant questions or concerns, and make changes to your course you deem valuable based on their feedback.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources for Instructors

We believe that "universities are the best places for promoting affirmation and understanding, with spaces for contemplation, debate, inquiry, meditation, and ideation. They are also spaces for artistic expression of anger, anguish, fear, hope, redemption and other emotions experienced during challenging times" (Interim President Beverly J. Davenport, An Open Letter to Our University Community). Our pages are dedicated to supporting instructors in the creation of inclusive learning spaces. Click here.
