Ohio University: Center for Teaching & Learning The Tempo of Teaching in a Semester — Challenges and Opportunities

Q2S Seminar Series

Date: TBD

Time: TBD

Location: Faculty Commons 301U

How does teaching and learning in a semester format differ from that of a quarter system? This seminar will focus on teaching and learning challenges and opportunities in moving to a semester format including:

  • helping to set students’ expectations at the beginning of the semester. (This issue will be especially important in the transition period of moving to a semester system);
  • recharging students’ and teachers’ energies to avoid “mid-semester doldrums”;
  • taking advantage of the semester format to gather and address student feedback at mid-term;
  • effective ways to conclude the semester.
