First Provost Conversation of Year to Explore Sharing Ideas

Sharing ideas across the disciplines: What works? What can be borrowed?

If the psychology, physics or history department has a good idea that works well to engage students, shouldn't that idea be shared?

That's the focus of this year's Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning.

On Thursday, Sept. 10 at 12:30 p.m. in the conference room of the Learning Commons@Perry Library, in the first Provost's Conversation of the academic year, representatives of the Psychology Department will kick off a season of sharing.

In the first Provost's conversation of the academic year, which will be moderated by psychology department Chair James Bliss, professor Michelle Kelley, associate professor Richard Landers, professor and Eminent Scholar Debra Major and senior lecturer Suzanne Morrow will offer proven methods for increasing student engagement and learning, both in face-to-face and online courses.

They'll discuss ways to ensure that course content and assessment strategies are unified into a single instructional vision, and they'll share methods they've used for creating synergy between teaching and other career demands, as well as ways to package teaching for career advancement.
