Creating Sustainable and Meaningful Course Final Projects - Cancelled

Wednesday, February 22, 2023
10:50 AM - 11:40 AM


Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511

This session is being delivered in a face-to-face format. You'll need to come to the offices of the Center for Teaching Excellence to attend. There is not a virtual option available to attend this presentation.


This presentation will focus on the importance of creating a final project that aligns with course goals and is also meaningful and sustainable. It will include tips and tricks, pitfalls to watch out for and best practices. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about a final project that has been implemented, as well as, begin to think of ways to implement this in their own courses.


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
