Professional Instructional Development Opportunity Close to Home: 13th Annual Faculty Conference on Teaching Excellence at Temple University, January 8, 2015
This regional conference on issues pertaining to learning and teaching in higher education provides a great forum to exchange teaching practices and ideas with colleagues; the event has been well reviewed by Villanova faculty members who attended in past years. The sessions are practice-based, research-supported and provide excellent ideas for enriching the teaching and learning process. Link to conference site.
Opportunity: VITAL is pleased to support a team of up to ten faculty colleagues across disciplines to attend the conference; VITAL will pay your conference registration fee; all other expenses would be your responsibility.
Caveat: Sponsored faculty members are asked to share with the Villanova teaching community a conference take-away: brief digitally recorded description and/or demonstration of teaching practice that supports student learning and participation mini “unconference” during early spring semester 2015.
If you are interested in attending this conference, please send email to Gabriele Bauer by Monday, December 1.
