Teaching Excellence Symposium

Fall 2020: Making Teaching Visible

Save The Date: December 3rd, 2020


Teaching is fundamentally an intellectual act (Border & Werner, 2012, 314). It is a reflection of our knowledge, interests, values, dispositions, and even our growth. This year’s Teaching Excellence Symposium once again showcases those efforts that reflect the intellectual work we put into our instructional craft, including the adaptations and shifts in teaching that have emerged during a world pandemic. The symposium is an opportunity to share your stories of teaching excellence, inspiration, innovation, and impact.

WHEN: Thursday, December 3, 2020

TIME: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

WHERE: Virtual

AUDIENCE: Faculty, staff, administrators

Accepting Proposals For:

Poster Presentation - Academic (asynchronous, non-facilitated). Construct a traditional academic poster according to your established disciplinary practices that will be shared in a virtual space for viewing and commenting on shared work.
Poster Presentation - Conceptual (facilitated, synchronous session, 10-minutes + 10 minutes of Q&A) - This format is an alternative to the traditional academic poster. It highlights a key concept, question, or finding intended to spark conversation. This format can vary, however, this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RwJbhkCA58) captures one way to organize this work.
TEDTalk-Style Pre-Recording - Share your story of teaching inspiration, innovation, and/or impact in a 10 minutes or less recorded video that will be shared in the Symposium program and offer space for colleagues to view and add comments.
Live Virtual Roundtable Focused Discussions - Share your story of teaching inspiration, innovation, and/or impact in under 10 minutes. Three to five teaching stories will be shared for each roundtable and followed with a moderated Q&A session for participants to engage in questions and discussion.
Other - Suggest your own format and symposium organizers will consider themes for additional sessions
