Part of the CTSI ACUE-Certified Effective Teaching Practices Showcase

Join U of T faculty graduates of the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Effective Teaching Practices course (ACUE-Certified Faculty) as they share insights from the 25 modules they completed over several months. They implemented, reimagined, and extended evidence-based teaching practices to support their teaching, learning and student success at U of T. This Series invites participants to hear from these instructors: their reflections upon what they have learned, and practical examples and tips informed by evidence-based strategies. Facilitators will engage in discussions on sharing these approaches into one’s current practice.

Facilitator: Linda Trinh, Assistant Professor, Exercise Oncology Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education

How do we bring the real world to the classroom to create more meaningful assignments? It is often challenging to create connections between students’ learning experiences and their everyday lives. The session will focus on inquiry-based learning by implementing instructional practices that support student success and course learning outcomes. Developing meaningful assignments will empower students to apply the content and skills they learned during the concept exploration and concept introduction stages to authentic scenarios and problems.
