Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Theme: Creating Success When Teaching & Learning Remotely

Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed online seminar series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.


Session 4: Teaching That Sticks: Six Ways to Make Your Lessons More Memorable


We spend hours making decisions on critical concepts and skills for our students to master; we think about the best ways to present those concepts and we carefully plan activities to engage our students. The goal? For our students to not only remember that content, but also use it.  Yet… some of our students just don’t get it. Maybe what our lesson lacked was “stickiness.” In this interactive session, we will discuss the six principles that Chip and Dan Heath propose in their book Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die” and ways to apply them to our teaching.


This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
