The week will include some of CTE's most popular workshops, as well as new ones such as Teaching Bottlenecks and Threshold Concepts, Assessing the Flipped Classroom, Assessing Case-Based Learning, and Big Questions: Active Learning in Large Classes.

Special guests include Clare Bermingham and Judi Jewinski who will present on Working with TAs: Training in Writing Assessment; Jill Tomasson Goodwin, Scott O'Neill, and Rhiannon Ball on High Quality High Impact Practices; and SFU's Nancy Johnston on Describing, Supporting, and Assessing International Experiential Learning
