Teaching and Learning Centers after the Reorganization (July 1, 2018)
Since July 1, 2018 the four-year receiving institutions have been helping faculty in the UW branch campuses that joined their respective institutions. Below are links and introductions from the different receiving institutions:
- UW-Eau Claire
- UW-Green Bay
- UW-Platteville: The Teaching and Learning Center information can be seen at this link. There are many opportunities and resources listed.
- UW-Stevens Point: We offer one-on-one consultations about anything related to teaching, mid-term student focus-groups, unit consultations on things like curriculum design and assessment, grants for online course development, professional development funds, workshops (both centralized in our space, but also customized and on-location by request), LMS support, Course Design Institutes, book groups, the Toward a More Inclusive Campus training, and learning communities.
- UW-Whitewater: The LEARN Center is UW-W’s teaching and learning center. We provide a range of programs and supports for instructors. Our main webpage is: https://www.uww.edu/learn. Here you can find information about programs and upcoming workshops. In the fall, instructors may be interested in our MidSemester Assessment Program - http://www.uww.edu/learn/mid-semester-assessment. In this program, LEARN Center consultants work with instructors to obtain student feedback on their course(s) mid semester. While we do offer in-class focus groups, the process can also be done totally via phone consultations with instructors and an online student survey. We’ve gotten positive feedback from instructors who have used the program. In particular, they have valued the opportunity to get student feedback prior to the end of the semester formal course evaluations and they’ve used that information to improve their courses. Instructors may also be interested in videos of some previous workshops from the last several years: http://www.uww.edu/learn/video
