Covering Content and Activities for a 50-minute Lecture

With Jonnia Torres Carolan, Doctoral Student, Linguistics 

This workshop aims to offer a “formula for success” for instructors and TAs teaching a 50-minute lecture. The session provides the essential tools needed to facilitate student learning. Participants will practice incorporating lecture-interrupting activities and strategies for active learning. These activities offer a creative way to design lectures that cultivate student motivation and enhance opportunities for more effective learning.

This workshop will take place remotely, via Zoom. You will need to be logged in to Zoom with your CU credentials to access this session. 

Slides will be shared with participants. Live captioning and ASL interpretation are available upon request. Email to request accommodations. We will attempt to fulfill all requests, but cannot guarantee requests made within 7 days of the event.

This session is part of the CTL’s Fall Intensive, an annual event supporting the development of graduate students as teaching scholars. The workshops are designed to help you teach at CU Boulder, begin your professional development in postsecondary education, and explore nonacademic job opportunities. While sessions are designed for graduate students, many are applicable to any educator new to CU Boulder and anyone is welcome at any event.
