ETCetera - Educational Training Content

The ETCetera teaching modules are created by faculty, for faculty. They represent a broad range of disciplines and teaching strategies.
In this Section

Welcome to ETCetera! 

This title and its shorter version, Etc., refers to the NTLC's Educational Training Content modules. As you interact with the modules, you will find them to be Engaging, packed with Teaching insights, Enriching, full of valuable Resources, and containing thought-provoking Activities. If you put all those words together, you have ETCetera and a wealth of information and ideas to explore.

To participate in applied discussion of these modules, you are invited to attend the ETCetera Dialogue Sessions.

The idea for the ETCetera modules was initiated in 2016 and throughout the coming year, a dozen modules were created, with additional ones being brainstormed. Each module is comprised of a content writer and in most cases, 2 to 6 short supportive videos created by faculty representing a broad range of disciplines and teaching strategies. These modules are linked with additional resources and are intended for new and seasoned instructors alike. The following topics were generated from a department chair survey and include:

  • How People Learn 
  • Course Coherence
  • Syllabi Development
  • Backward Design
  • Assessment
  • Creative Lesson Planning
  • Face-to-Face Teaching
  • Online Teaching Strategies
  • High Impact Practices
  • Critical Thinking
  • Diversity and Inclusivity
  • Undergraduate Student Research
  • Universal Design for Learning (Under Construction)

It often takes a village to create and implement truly meaningful projects, this is no exception. Expertise and project guidance was provided by Jamison Patrick at UW-Stout Online and his outstanding students, David Anthony, Shannen Domecq and Megan Daniels who created the modules, magically bringing together content, videos and visuals. Support from Jamison’s supervisor, Renee Chandler, was extremely appreciated. 

In addition, the videography skills of Ed Jakober and the LMS expertise provided by Learning Technology Services in housing the completed modules were invaluable. Funding was provided by the Chancellor's Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success.
