All faculty are invited and encouraged to submit a proposal to present at the 5th annual Faculty Conference on September 11, 2013. Proposals are welcome from all disciplines.
Organized by the Faculty Dialogue Committee and held prior to start of fall semester, the conference provides a collegial setting for academic dialogue where instructors from across the disciplines have an opportunity to present their insights and research relative to the conference theme.
The theme for the 2013 Faculty Conference is "The Scholarship of Learning and Teaching: Applying the Principles of the BYU-Idaho Learning Model."
The chair of the Dialogue Committee, Jason Flora, said, "This year's conference represents the culmination of a yearlong discussion on the fundamental principles underlying the BYU-Idaho Learning Model, and will emphasize hands-on applications of those principles in the classroom. Similar to last year, our committee also plans to make several on and off-campus excursions available to faculty following the conference. We hope to provide all those who attend with an instructive, rejuvenating experience heading into the new semester."
The 2013 Faculty Conference will be held on Wednesday, September 11, beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Hinckley Chapel.
