Join us for a teaching cafe dedicated to exploring this seminal pedagogical document. Susan Roberta Katz (Professor, International and Multicultural Education, Human Rights Education) will present tips for designing a well-constructed syllabus. Coffee and light snacks will be served.

Knowing how to read and interpret the literature in a particular field is something that experts in the field usually take for granted and novices are often left to figure out on their own. Mathew Mitchell (Learning and Instruction) and Eugene Kim (Law) will present and demonstrate alouds methods for helping students achieve specific literacies that are required for their disciplines. A facilitated Q&A will follow. Coffee and light snacks will be served.
