There are many factors that go into teaching a successful course, but sometimes we put our greatest efforts into areas that may not provide the biggest payoff and neglect those aspects that may require less effort but give huge benefits to both you and your students.

As the fall semester approaches, this may be a good time to think about the course that you will teach then. Whether you are teaching a new course or repeating one from previous years, it is good to think carefully about how best to structure (or restructure) it in order to obtain the best results.

At the next UCITE session, we will look at how to design a course that takes into account those things we have learned about what really counts.

Join us for that session on Thursday, June 19, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen Building (at the corner of Euclid and Adelbert). Use the Adelbert Road doors.

Pizza lunch, sodas, and water will be provided at this session. To help estimate the amount to order, RSVP by emailing
