Teaching Academy extends deadline for conference proposals to Feb. 5
The Academy of Teaching's Executive Council, has extended its proposal submission deadline for the Annual Conference on Excellence in Teaching & Learning to Feb. 5.
Now entering its 14th year, the conference has grown to become one of the more popular venues on our campus, an event where faculty, students, instructional support staff, and administration come together in a robust interdisciplinary exchange of pedagogical theory and classroom practice. Attendees regularly tout the value of being able to share effective teaching strategies, thoughtful curriculum design, and other high-impact, evidence-based practices--often reaching across the disciplinary boundaries that can sometimes hinder such rich conversations.
This year, the conference theme is "Improving Teaching & Learning Through Feedback." Whether that takes the form of surveys, evaluations, peer observations, formal grades, informal comments, self-assessments, and aggregated data, we regularly utilize these tools in our shared mission to improve the educational experience at Ohio State. We anticipate exploring these big-picture questions: 1) What are some of the tried-and-tested ways that we utilize feedback? 2) How can we reimagine these instruments to use in new, more effective ways? By the end of the day, conference-goers will have new tools, strategies, and ways of thinking that will reshape how they approach their own use of feedback both in and out of the classroom.
