Pedagogy-Driven Instructional Workshops

In collaboration with the AU Core Curriculum and the University Library, CTRL invites American University faculty and staff to attend one or several of the CTRL Pedagogy-Driven Instructional Workshops, which take place during the third and fourth weeks of May.

This year’s program includes curriculum-based workshops on topics such as active learning, curriculum design, and grading strategies; instructional technology workshops on topics such as video creation, creating surveys in Qualtrics, and the Blackboard gradebook; a Community-Based Learning institute; two Complex Problems Faculty Fellows Workshops; as well as “Office Hours” hosted by faculty from each of the AU Core’s five Habits of Mind.

On May 16, we will feature a special luncheon for winners of the 2017-2018 CTRL Faculty Awards at noon in the Abramson Family Founders Room in SIS. During the luncheon, we will learn more about the classroom accomplishments of our winners.

You can view the complete schedule, read detailed session descriptions, and register for the workshops on our website at
