Big Red Teaching Days

Big Red Teaching Days is a week-long program that provides faculty a collegial opportunity to informally observe and learn about how their peers approach teaching and learning across a range of courses and learning environments. Faculty can participate by hosting, which means voluntarily opening their classroom to a colleague or two, and by visiting peers’ classrooms. The goals of Big Red Teaching Days are a deepening of conversations about good teaching across our community and an opportunity to experience the innovation that occurs in classrooms at Cornell.

Digital storytelling community of practice

Digital storytelling and storytelling practices hold the promise of being democratic, accessible, and empowering for their creators. Offering a chance for this community of practice to meet with a skills workshop will allow our teaching community to deepen or become familiar with an inclusive teaching strategy that helps build digital literacy; research and argumentation skills; and effective, persuasive advocacy techniques.

Teaching & Learning in the Diverse Classroom

Teaching & Learning in the Diverse Classroom is a four-week, instructor-paced online course for anyone with teaching responsibilities at Cornell, at any level of diversity expertise. Modules explore strategies for inclusive course design, social identity and self-reflection, and pedagogical practices that effectively support student engagement and a sense of belonging across difference.

Teaching & Learning Reading Group

What does research tell us about which teaching practices work best for student learning? How do people conduct education research? Please join us for bi-weekly discussions about teaching and education research throughout the school-year. The Teaching and Learning Reading Group is open to faculty, staff and grad students. Feel free to join in at any point during the semester.

What works? New ideas in grading & assessment

What Works? is an interactive session on strategies for practical, effective assessment of student learning. It will feature faculty demonstrations of useful strategies, the chance to explore multiple applications such as Gradescope, and a poster area featuring innovations in grading and assessment tools. Join us for opportunities to explore what works for you with fellow faculty and Center for Teaching Innovation staff.
