Institute addresses faculty’s questions

By Northern Star Staff

The Teaching Effectiveness Institute hopes to create classroom excitement.

NIU’s 2014 Teaching Effectiveness Institute, scheduled for Jan. 9 to 10, will tackle some of the fundamental questions educators and schools face. The institute will teach educators how to motivate and engage apathetic students.

Sponsored by the Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center, the workshops are for faculty, instructors and SPS and Civil Service teaching staff only.

The registration deadline for both days is Dec. 13. Registration is available online at each session’s respective website.

Registered participants will receive workshop materials and a certificate of participation.
