Weekly Teaching Notes: 2012-2013 Index

May 08 2013

I've enjoyed the conversations I've had with many of you this year, as you responded to me – in person or in email – about a particular idea. Below is a list of all the Weekly Teaching Notes from the 2012-2013 academic year, with direct links to each one. Weekly Teaching Notes will break for the summer and resume again in the fall.

At the Center for Teaching and Learning, we are here throughout the summer and are eager to assist you with your teaching, course design or redesign, scholarly writing, and preparing your reappointment/tenure/promotion portfolios. (All consultations are voluntary and confidential.) To make an appointment with us, please email Jea Ahn (instructional Designer, Old Westbury) at jahn05@nyit.edu, Olena Zhadko (instructional designer, Manhattan) at ozhadko@nyit.edu, or me at fglazer@nyit.edu. We will be delighted to work with you!
