Teaching Strategies workshop for UF’s K-College CTSI Program

K-College CTSI workshop on teaching

Drs. Christiaan Leeuwenburgh and Maryam Rhaman (seated to his left) led a small group discussion about strategies for classroom teaching.


The workshop was held in one of the active learning conference rooms in UF’s Clinical & Translational Science Institute.

Creating an effective syllabus, incorporating active learning into teaching, and using informal teaching evaluations were topics of the workshop I led with faculty, post-docs and doctoral students attending the CTSI KL2 session on “Strategies for Improving College Teaching” in the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute at the University of Florida.

A theme throughout the workshop was how translational teaching strategies can be – helping you be effective in teaching class, talking with the media about a research development, or presenting at a conference.

I appreciated the invitation from Dr. Christiaan Leeuwenburgh to be the workshop leader and to him, Dr. Christy Carter and Dr. Maryam Rahman for their assistance with the workshop, and to Maria Gavidia for her support with workshop logistics.

Thanks to the participants’ involvement in a range of active learning activities.

Here are some of the workshop materials: handout of suggested readings — Dodd’s CTSI Teaching Strategies handout — and selected slides from my presentation.
