Sparkshops are 20-minute Zoom mini-workshops, which focus on small teaching interventions that instructors can apply to improve student learning. They are meant to spark conversations and the exploration of a teaching-related topic. Each Sparkshop provides an introduction to an evidence-based teaching practice, potential reasons faculty might incorporate the practice in their course, a description of how the practice can be implemented (supplemented with a guide), and an opportunity to request more information or support for implementation.
Sparkshops are perfect for all faculty, GTAs, or teaching staff interested in exploring novel strategies. Units may request a special topic Sparkshop.
Sparkshops are offered twice each Fall, Winter, and Spring term at 12 p.m. For dates and topics click on 'More Information' below.
