Best Practices Conference
The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) and the Pforzheimer Center for Faculty Development are sponsoring the fifth annual Best Practices Conference. The Best Practices Conference this February will look at the student-faculty relationship; specifically, the shared responsibility of faculty and students and the ownership of their respective roles. A better understanding of these roles can assist in promoting academic excellence and move the university community toward a more enriched and rewarding academic experience.
Both faculty and student participation are necessary to make the Best Practices Conference a success.
We are looking for contributions that can be presented by faculty and students on a range of topics including but not limited to:
- Active teaching/learning methodologies;
- High impact educational practices;
- Project-based and case-based learning;
- Learning outcomes that address transferable skills employers are looking for;
- Interdisciplinary teaching/learning;
- Scholarly activities in the residence halls;
- Mutual respect and mentoring relationships,
- Creative use of technology in the classroom.
We encourage the proposal of interactive workshops, demonstrations, presentations and panel discussions comprised of students and faculty. Deadline to submit a proposal is Friday January 23rd, 2015.
This year's theme is:
