Four Questions to Guide Course and Program Assessment
The Concordia Intramural Teaching Grant application information is now available for the 2016-2017 academic year. Applications are due June 1, 2016.
Full-time faculty members at Mequon or Ann Arbor may submit applications for an innovative teaching project connected to a face-to-face or blended course they are scheduled to teach in the 2016-2017 academic year.
Funding supports the development, demonstration and evaluation of innovation in a particular course which is over and above normal teaching expectations. Examples might include a service learning project, developing a problem-based learning approach in a course, strategies to support measurement of student learning for a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project, or a project that demonstrates the value of high-impact practices or the Concordia Principles for Good Practice in Teaching and Learning.
This grant is administered by the Director of the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT), Elizabeth Evans who can be reached at 262 243 4283 or Elizabeth.evans@cuw.
Tuesday November 10, 1-3pm on Pharmacy 149

Seminar presented by Neil Andrews from Wolfram, the makers of Mathematica. This will be an introduction to the software and hands-on help. Concordia University has purchased a site license. All faculty and students can download and activate the software for free, but it may be especially helpful for those in the math or sciences areas.
Downloading and installing Mathematica is easy through the Wolfram user portal (https://user.wolfram.com/portal/login.html). You need to create a Wolfram account. You can then download Mathematica and request an activation key. Anyone with a @cuw.edu or @cuaa.edu email should have no trouble obtaining an activation key.
Here is a link to a 6 minute overview of Mathematica: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0QPUemRnPU
The session will be recording for those who cannot attend.
