Transforming Learning Through Teaching (TLTT)

Spring 2021: This 12-week session begins Wed., January 27 - Wed., April 21. ORT (Online Real-Time) sessions on Wednesdays between 5:30pm-7:30pm will be required. Schedule will be provided by the instructor on the first day of class.

In this transformative course, a collaborative approach is used to model various teaching and learning strategies and create a faculty learning community. Whether you are new to teaching, or have loads of experience, you won't want to miss this unique experience!

This course provides an opportunity to...

  • Connect with faculty from across disciplines to share, explore, and reflect upon current teaching and learning practices.
  • Experience various teaching and learning strategies from a student's perspective.
  • Apply newly learned techniques with the support of colleagues.

Popular session topics include:

  • Learning from the Learners (LCC students participate in this session)
  • Preventing and Addressing Disruptive Behavior
  • Student Engagement
  • Creating an inclusive classroom
  • Characteristics of the Community College Learner

"Initially, I was hesitant to take the seminar, afraid it might be too theoretical without any direct application ... But from the very first session, you set me straight! In every session I learned something that I will use to be a better (more effective) teacher."
- Mobashera Hallam, Developmental Math

"...Through material presented, interactions with the instructor, and fellow faculty members, I was able to gain new insights into teaching techniques that create a more active and engaged learning environment. TLTT also renewed my outlook on students and the unique challenges they face; it also equipped me to help them be successful. As an adjunct faculty member, I valued the opportunity to meet colleagues from other disciplines, share best practices, etc. It was very encouraging. This course is absolutely a worthwhile investment of your time!"
- Nikki Gruesbeck, Health and Wellness
