For over twenty years, the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching at Northwestern University has sought to enhance learning and teaching in higher education. Through our workshops, programs, consultations, and research, we have long sought to communicate and contribute to best practices.
Through our blog, we hope to create an interactive forum in which faculty and staff, post-docs, grad students, and undergrads from Northwestern (and beyond!) can share ideas, strategies, and insights related to their experiences with learning and teaching.
In upcoming posts, we will explore a range of topics, including designing courses around learning, teaching in a diverse classroom, assessing student learning, peer assessment, promoting critical thinking, evaluating your teaching, and much more…
We are also interested in posts from guest contributors, so if you’ve got a great idea related to learning and teaching in higher education, please let us know. Contact us at: teach(at)northwestern(dot)edu.
We’d love to hear from you. What kinds of questions or topics related to learning and teaching in higher education would you like to see us address? Let us know!
