Call for proposals: UW-Green Bay Faculty Development Conference
The 19th Annual Faculty Development Conference will be held Jan. 21, 2015 in the University Union at UW-Green Bay. This year’s theme is “Engaging Students as Partners in Teaching and Learning: A High Impact Practice for All.” The premise: Typically we teach to students… what happens if we approach the task differently, aiming to teach with students? Emerging research suggests that engaging students as partners in teaching and learning has a potential to enhance, and perhaps even transform, student learning-and also faculty teaching. The keynote speaker is Prof. Peter Felton, assistant provost and director of the Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University. His publications include the co-authored books Transforming Students: Fulfilling the Promise of Higher Education and Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching.
Call for Presenters: Conference participants are invited to submit a proposal no later than Nov. 14. Forms and more information can be found on the website, www.uwgb.edu/catl/conference.
