New TMAC Resources: As you plan your courses for next semester, we have added new resources to assist in your work: there are now additional resources on Learning Goals, both how to create them and how to make sure they work for students.

We have also created a new page on Syllabus and Assignment Design that gives both practical advice and a theoretical framework for designing syllabi and courses that connect to the learning goals set by both you and your department.

Upcoming TMAC events:

December 3 (Armitage 108) 12:20-1:20 p.m.: “Grading: Frank Talk on Our Least Favorite Activity”

Join us for a “brown bag” conversation on grades, why we grade the way we do and the options available to us.
