Teaching Effectiveness: Teaching Today's Students

This is a past event.

Presented in the UAB Center for Teaching and Learning for UAB faculty by CTL Director, Amy Chatham, Ph.D.

Most faculty will agree that teaching each new generation of students requires us to re-evaluate our teaching methods. Teaching Generation Z post-COVID is truly stretching us. In this workshop, you will learn about the distinctiveness of this generation, how best to communicate with them, and what they say they want out of higher education. Additionally, we will be covering how to incorporate writing into your course and introduce the UAB Writing Center as a resource to support your students.
