Add Adult Degree’s Hicks to long list of conference presenters

We inadvertently omitted one name from the long list of UW-Green Bay faculty and staff members who presented at last Friday’s Faculty Development Conference. Pat Hicks, instructional program manager for Adult Degree Programs, joined Pam Gilson and Steve VandenAvond in addressing “The Real Deal with Credit for Prior Learning.” It’s corrected on the photo gallery page.

 

Great photos from a great conference: Faculty Development 2014

It was well-attended, thought-provoking and provided a great day of learning (about learning, and assessment) for the hundred-plus UW-Green Bay faculty members and educators from across the state who attended the Jan. 24 Faculty Development Conference on campus. Many UWGB faculty members were presenters. Nice photos.

Faculty-Development-Conference

The University Union was the setting last Friday (Jan. 24) for the 2014 version of the annual UW-Green Bay Faculty Development Conference. The always well-attended event attracted registrations from educators across the state in addition to UW-Green Bay participants, as is customary. Following opening remarks by Prof. Jennifer Lanter of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, and Chancellor Tom Harden, keynote speaker Barbara Walvoord, professor emerita of the University of Notre Dame, addressed the conference topic of “Assessment as a Tool for Change.”

Breakout sessions involving UW-Green Bay presenters included Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges on using rubrics to assess psychology learning outcomes; a session on writing-assignment rubrics by faculty members Debbie Burden, Tara DaPra, Dianne Gordon, Jenny Ronsman and Brian Sutton; and Pat Hicks, Pam Gilson and Steve VandenAvond discussing “The Real Deal with Credit for Prior Learning.” Faculty members from UW-Extension, Madison, Platteville, Sheboygan and Whitewater also led workshops, as did Walvoord, the keynote speaker. The luncheon speaker was Stefan Hall, a past recipient of UW-Green Bay’s top award for teaching, the Founders Award. The annual event is hosted by CATL, the Instructional Development Council and the academic deans.
