Sustainable Teaching.

Summary: For the teaching of a course to be emotionally and intellectually satisfying there must be learning. For such teaching to be sustainable the amount of effort must be reasonable.
What does it take to create a course that is satisfying and do-able, for the long haul?
In this workshop I will consider some ideas about Student learning, Principles of a well-aligned course, A ‘common sense’ checklist for sustainability. I hope that the ideas presented will help you find your way to teach courses that regularly provide a rich learning experience for students and a satisfying intellectual endeavor for yourself. Workshop is primarily for graduate students, post docs and faculty early in teaching careers.
