Welcome to ITL and this table!  Join your fellow Mason instructors to informally discuss this table's topic. At the table, you will find desk copies of related resources (digital versions are available below), and an experienced Mason colleague who has experience and strategies related to this topic.  Not sure what to talk about?  Here are some conversation starters:
  • Share a little about yourselves: 

    • Department

    • Years at Mason

    • Courses you are teaching

    • What excites you about teaching?

  • What brought you to this table?

  • What’s working the best for you in your course(s) right now? Why do you think it’s successful?

  • If you could improve the student experience in one aspect of your course, where would you start -- with how you’re presenting information? ...assessing student work? ...engaging and motivating students? ...creating space for higher-order thinking or real-world projects? ...building stronger community? ...something else?

  • If you could improve your own experience in one aspect of your course -- to support  your engagement, time management, standards, relationships with students -- what would you want to work on?

Have an example or resource to share?  Submit through this link and we'll upload it after the conference: Still have questions?  Leave a post it note on the table sign at the end of the Share-a-thon or email your questions to   ADDITIONAL RESOURCES:
