Previous Workshops

Using Undergraduate Learning Assistants to Promote Student Engagement in a Large Microbiology Course
Presenter: Dr. Jennifer McLean
Event Contact: Andrew West
Date: February 08, 2018
Location: Pathology 103
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Description: Interactions between undergraduate learning assistants (ULAs) and students have the potential to be a high-impact practice, not only for the ULA, but also for the course students. In this seminar, I hope to show you how I have changed the role of my ULAs from a one that focused on helping me with the administrative tasks in my large enrollment STEM course, to a role that is focused instead on increasing student engagement with the course material, as well as enriching the learning experience for my ULAs.

College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences MTI Luncheon
Presenter: Dr. Erin Malone (University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine)
Event Contact: Andrew West
Date: October 20, 2017
Location: VTH A221
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Description: Clinical and hands-on skills training is an integral part of veterinary and biomedical curricula. However, with more and more content squeezed into our programs, it is essential that the training hours used be effective and efficient. New research in motor skills learning should make us take another look at our training programs. During this seminar, Dr. Erin Malone will make recommendations from the research for clinical and other hands-on types of learning.
