2021 Summer Working Groups

Get some support while you work on your course this summer.

Join a group of instructors working steadily on their courses over the summer! Working groups provide the support, accountability, and feedback you need to take your course to the next level. Biweekly group meetings may include discussions, readings, and guest speakers; participants will share syllabi, assignments, discussion prompts, and other teaching materials with the group for workshopping.

Logistics

  • Biweekly synchronous online meetings, scheduled based on participants’ availability (we all need a vacation these days; if you’ll miss a meeting here and there during the summer, that’s totally fine)
  • Facilitated by SAS OUE teaching and learning team members
  • Commitment to creating, sharing, and providing feedback on each others’ course materials
