Call for Sessions
The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology
The planning committee invites and encourages your participation in this year’s Institute. The committee seeks sessions that demonstrate innovative, interdisciplinary, and/or collaborative efforts that faculty, administrators, staff and students engage in regarding teaching, learning and research activities. Multimedia infused pedagogies where students are active learners are encouraged. Focused forums on topics that engage faculty to form interdisciplinary and research opportunities are sought. The committee actively seeks successful strategies that have improved the academic discourse (oral and written) skills of Pace students. In addition, if you have been involved with the Faculty Resource Network (FRN) or received internal (e.g. Provost Grant, Thinkfinity, Scholarly Research) or external grant funding we hope you will consider facilitating a session. Finally, if you developed online or blended materials/courses/programs, a learning community or other interdisciplinary collaborative programs within or across Pace’s schools and colleges, we hope you will share your expertise.
