A past participant:
The Summer Toolbox Series held last summer by the CVM Teaching Academy was an invaluable experience for me as a new teacher. The sessions introduced core concepts and fundamentals in teaching which provided me with building blocks I used to structure, guide and enrich my course. It also gave me some confidence prior to the start of a big semester! I sort of thought of it as a mini-course in teaching and was impressed by the Academy's desire to present topics from an evidence-based perspective. The persons leading the sessions were exceptional, and attendees were from several different WSU departments and of different experience levels, which made interactive sessions fun, educational and expanded my views of what is possible in the classroom. I highly recommend it!
