Welcome Back – January 2013 (Blake’s Blog)

Welcome back to UNBC for another semester!

The first weeks of the semester are always the best! The overall stress level is low, and everyone has exciting stories about time away from UNBC. There are also lots of exciting events going on around campus, and you (well at least I) feel like you might actually have time to participate.

I have always tried to take advantage of workshops, talks, and especially social events in the first month of each semester. I know that come February I am going to be swamped and too busy to do anything other than bury my face in a book or computer screen. There are lots of awesome things going on around campus – insert shameless plug for CTLT workshops here. However, I encourage everyone to enjoy the first few weeks as much as possible and take the opportunity to take a breath, because April is a long time from now!

Let us at the CTLT know if there is anything we can do to help your teaching experiences be less of a burden, and more like fun!

Getting the font size right for a presentation is often tricky, especially with different screen sizes and room sizes.

Learning Objectives

A good way of making sure your students learn what you are trying to teach them is to have very clearly outlined learning outcomes.

Check out this resource as a good starting point.
