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).

Creating Accessible and Open Class Documents with Markdown – “I have been using Markdown to author documents such as syllabi and assignment sheets. This produces HTML as the final product, which has many accessibility benefits compared to other document formats like Word and PDF. In this presentation I will briefly introduce Markdown and how it can be used in an academic setting.”
