2014 Faculty Conference & Schedule

The 2014 Faculty Conference will be held Tuesday, September 9 from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM.  

The Faculty Dialogue Committee is incorporating a few exciting changes to this year's Fall Faculty Conference.  The theme of this year's conference is "Facilitating Deep Learning in a Student-Centered Classroom:  What Works?"  The conference will be held from 8:30-12:00 and will begin with a 30 minute keynote address from Brian Memmott, speaking on the benefits of developing curiosity among faculty and students to enhance creativity in learning.  This year, a larger number of faculty sessions will follow the keynote.  A total of 10 faculty members will present shorter 20 minute sessions this year at three separate times to allow more opportunity for attendees to catch sessions of interest.  All the presenters at this year's conference were personally invited to participate based on recommendations by colleagues or from having received recent campus awards for implementing learning strategies with their students that actually translate into results.  The conference will conclude at 12:00 pm with a buffet lunch from 12-1 pm, which we hope will encourage faculty to stay and mingle with presenters and colleagues.  Please join us for what should be a wonderful start to the new academic year.
