Developing Classroom Guidelines: Thoughtful and Critical Approaches

Series: CTLT Institute

Event Date & Time

  • August 22, 2019
    11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Event Description

Developing classroom guidelines is one of the strategies that instructors can take in order to set up a space that is conducive to learning for everyone. This strategy was also recognized as a helpful practice in a student panel session “Equity and Inclusion in Teaching and Learning: Student Perspectives” during the 2019 Celebrate Learning Week

However, in order for classroom guidelines to be truly effective and meaningful, it requires careful and critical considerations, especially around their purpose, and development and implementation processes. This Summer Institute workshop intends to build more capacity among UBC faculty, instructors, and TAs in building and implementing effective classroom guidelines. 

Based on literature and experiences shared by educators teaching in various teaching and learning settings, this workshop identifies key areas of consideration for creating classroom guidelines and presents sample guidelines for inspiration and critique. You will discuss applications of classroom guidelines to different teaching settings, such as classrooms in various disciplines, formats (e.g., face-to-face, online, labs), and sizes. 

By the end of the workshop, you will have developed your draft plans for how to create and use such guidelines in your own teaching contexts.

Participants are welcome to bring their own lunch to eat during the session.
