2016-2017 Programming 

We will be scheduling additional presentations and workshops over the course of the year on various focused topics including educational technology, concept videos, simulation, and student assessment. These sessions will start in September, and will be 1-2 hours in length.  We plan to present each topic numerous times over the year to make sure everyone has a chance to attend. 

Dear Pathways Faculty,

Since we started the new curriculum in August, faculty have gained a lot of experience teaching in the Case-Based Collaborative Learning (CBCL) format. We have identified a few Immunity in Defense and Disease (IDD) course faculty who have experience and can serve as great examples of how to run a session. 

As part of faculty development, I encourage everyone to plan to observe a session to get a better idea of how the sessions actually work. Below is a list of faculty and sessions where you are welcome to sit in and observe. All of the faculty on this list have agreed to have regular observers. 

I know you are still in the process of recruiting (and running courses!) and we'll plan to have observations available all year. If you have anyone else who will be writing a session, it would be a good idea to have them observe even before they start writing.

Please note: Please contact the faculty member directly before observing a session (in part to make sure we don't have too many observers!). The emails are included on the list.

Thank you. Please let me know if you have any questions.
