Success stories

A warm welcome for new instructors

For new instructors, getting acclimated to the UW–Madison campus and teaching expectations can be a bit overwhelming. CTLM provides onboarding help to support the teaching and learning community and make the experience more comfortable.

Large class, no large lectures

CTLM is working with instructors in the Department of Kinesiology on a plan to transform a large introductory physiology course, Kinesiology 335, by eliminating large lectures.

The core group learning component will be a biweekly “laboratory workshop” designed to give students the opportunity to apply the concepts they’re learning through experiments, case studies and group-based question-and-answer sessions.

Students come to this course with varying levels of experience and knowledge – this approach provides more opportunity for differentiated instruction as well as a more holistic, meaningful understanding of physiology.
