Active Learning in Quantitative Courses

Tuesday Nov. 28, 12:00 -- 2:00 pm OR

Wednesday Nov. 29, 12:00 -- 2:00 pm

Location:  Bldg 4-1-317

Research over the last decade is solid: students in quantitative courses learn more when the class period frequently has them actively involved in the material, rather than spending the majority of class time listening and writing notes. But some activities are better than others, so what kinds of activities are most effective? How do instructors plan the class agenda? What do you do about lost time for content? This workshop offers a plethora of strategies to consider, plus time for actual planning and creation of effective activities.

Brown Bag:  Planning to FERP

Wednesday Nov. 29, 9:00 -- 10:00 am

Location:  Faculty Center 1-228

Funniest serious acronym ever:  FERP, the Faculty Early Retirement Program, provides eligible retired faculty members an opportunity to receive retirement income & benefits while earning pay for post-retirement CSU employment for a limited duration and time base.  But how does it work?  How do you decide? What questions should you ask?  Cordelia Ontiveros, interim AVP of Faculty Affairs, and CFA representatives, hold a Q&A session.
