Are you interested in improving student learning in the classroom? Small changes in your teaching can enhance how and why students learn across all learners. In this Professional Learning Community (PLC), facilitators introduce transparency in learning and teaching (TILT), discuss strategies for integrating these concepts into the classroom, and facilitate discussion focused on the value of TILT for EKU student learners. Participants will receive a packet of information focused on TILT and resources to use in their classrooms. Through this PLC, participants will apply TILT strategies to specific course materials such as syllabi, assignments, rubrics, or other resources and have the opportunity to draft or revise course documents with support from facilitators.

Beginner, intermediate and advanced participants are welcome. Beginners can learn a variety of basic watercolor skills and techniques, as well as basic principles of color theory, composition, fixing mistakes and special effects. Intermediate and advanced students can concentrate on improving their skills. Beginner students should bring photos of watercolor paintings they admire. Intermediate/advanced students should bring one or more of their own paintings to class for suggestions for improvement. The goal of this class is for each student to identify a direction to pursue in their personal watercolor journey.
