Pop-Up Clinics About Teaching (CATs)

Do you know of a colleague who is doing innovative work in the classroom that might be of interest to other faculty members? Are you doing something innovative that you would be willing to demonstrate to other faculty?

With regular frequency, we hear about innovative and exciting teaching practices that are happening across various departments and colleges at Marshall University. There are also a number of faculty members who offer to demonstrate interesting and innovative teaching practices to their peers, hoping to get valuable feedback to increase their own teaching effectiveness. The CTL offers a professional development opportunity for faculty to showcase these teaching practices – the Pop-Up Clinics About Teaching (CATs).

Herd Hours: An Alternative to Traditional Office Hours

“Office hours, a time and place where students receive professor guidance, is an asset available to nearly every college and university student; however, many students do not use office hours. Office hours can be extremely beneficial, so the question exists, how to get students who need help to come to office hours? Herd Hours is a group oriented out of class faculty-student interaction opportunity for students that provides an alternative to office hours that successfully addresses this question.”
