Upcoming Workshops

The Centre for Teaching Excellence has assembled a series of online workshops aimed at providing instructors with some tips, strategies, and hands-on practice in facilitating various activities in your online class. The sessions were tailored based on feedback from student and faculty surveys in May 2020 during the COVID-19 situation and aim to help you to plan, prepare, and teach your courses in a flexible range of online environments. We hope you can join us for these sessions.

Note: This page will be updated periodically with new workshop offerings based on the evolving situation and feedback from instructors.

CTE / CEC Workshops 

In addition to the above workshops, the Centre for English Communication and the Centre for Teaching Excellence are pleased to jointly offer the SMU teaching community an extended exploration into two vital aspects of SMU’s interactive pedagogy - Giving Feedback and Facilitation 

SMU’s hallmark interactive seminars involve faculty interacting dynamically with students in lessons, fostering open intellectual discussions, and a vibrant exchange of ideas with peers and educators. Unlike the more traditional didactic teaching model of old, students are guided and facilitated to construct their own meaning and learning.

This active teaching and learning partnership is best executed when underpinned by an appreciation and understanding of two key dimensions – how to facilitate meaningful learning, and how to effectively provide students with feedback.

Due to COVID-19 measures, both workshops will be conducted online, mirroring a facilitated e-learning approach that educators can adapt to their own classrooms.
