Registration Open for Active Learning Initiative (ALI) Workshops

Registration is now open for the Fall 2021 Active Learning Initiative (ALI) workshops.

This workshop is required in the first two years of appointment for assistant professors (both TT and renewable contract). For those TT assistants who are interested in an ASPIRE semester, they must complete this workshop before they apply.

The workshop takes place over three sessions over the fall semester. Faculty must attend all three.

The content portion of the workshops will be recorded and available on the Blackboard page for the workshop. There will also be Zoom sessions for follow-up discussions. Finally, the mentors will be available for one-on-one feedback and discussion as needed.

To participate in the workshop, you need to be registered on the BlackBoard class site. If you have not reached out to me already and would like to be added to the class, please do so.

Session Dates

Tuesday, September 7, 3:30–5:00pm

Tuesday, October 5, 3:30–5:00pm

Tuesday, November 9, 3:30–5:00pm

They will take place in ten Hoor 30, which is a giant room so there will be plenty of room to spread out.


To register, please email Lisa Dorr at Lisa.Dorr@ua.edu, and provide your myBama login ID (not their password); Lisa will add you to the Blackboard class for this year.
