Teaching the UB Curriculum

Video: Teaching UB Seminars

Additional resources for teaching UB Seminars are available on the UB Curriculum website.

Teaching UB Seminars provides information to help faculty prepare to teach UB Seminar courses this fall.

Video presentations include: review of the basic goals and learning outcomes of UB Seminars, including some suggestions on how to handle academic success learning outcomes; using ePortfolios in UB Seminars; and the demographics and interests of our incoming freshmen class. In addition, Andrew Stott, vice provost and dean of undergraduate education, shares some personal experiences teaching a pilot version of a UB Seminar.

Teaching the UB Curriculum workshops

Our center is partnering with the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education to develop a series of workshops for faculty who are teaching the new UB Curriculum, which begins fall 2016.

The first of these workshops will focus on ePortfolios, purposeful digital collections of student work that can be used to showcase their efforts and ideas, and act as archives of learning, discovery, progress, achievement and self-reflection.

Teaching the UB Curriculum workshops include:

  • Using ePortfolios to Make Learning Visible
  • Using Digication for UB Curriculum ePortfolios and Course Management
  • Leveraging the ePortfolio for Student Engagement and Assessment
  • Methods for Assessing UB Curriculum Learning Outcomes
