The NTLC hosts and facilitates many programs throughout the year that are
designed to provide instructors access to outstanding speakers,
workshops, and opportunities to gather with other colleagues who are
passionate about improving their teaching practices and enhancing
student learning. In August, the Center offers
several such events including the New Instructor Workshop. During January Professional Development Week each year, the NTLC
hosts some type of event that either showcases UW-Stout faculty teaching
and learning project outcomes or sponsors a speaker/workshop. In May,
instructors associated with the Center are featured during a half-day
event affectionately known as MayDay. It is a true celebration of what
has been achieved throughout the year.
During UW-Stout's January Professional Development Week, the Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center offers programming which may include showcasing instructor teaching strategies in the classroom, hosting a speaker, or conducting a morning workshop. Please watch for our announcements and join in the fun!

During mid-August, NTLC hosts its annual workshop for new faculty and academic staff. This workshop focuses on teaching and student-related issues that directly impact new hires. Examples of effective strategies for teaching, research and service are shared, often by seasoned faculty. One of the many benefits of attending this workshop is the camaraderie that is created and the wonderful networking that occurs. Woven into the event, are opportunities for instructor dialogue and an exchange of classroom teaching strategies and new ideas. The workshop experience is designed to help instructors transition into their courses, learn about services and resources that NTLC and others can provide, and connect to fellow educators who are passionate about teaching as well as the research and service activities they are involved in.
The Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center facilitates summer institutes on a variety of teaching and learning related issues that are topical and responsive to faculty needs and university priorities. Please contact Renee Howarton to discuss ideas and to get more information on scheduled workshops.
