"Practicing Scholarly and Creative Teaching"
The conference theme, “Practicing Scholarly and Creative Teaching,” encourages us to examine and promote those strategies of deliberate practice that constitute highly effective instruction. As Ken Bain says in What the Best College Teachers Do (2004), “Exceptional teachers treat their lectures, discussions sections, problem-based sessions, and other elements of teaching as serious intellectual endeavors as intellectually demanding and important as their research and scholarship” (p. 17).
Do you have an exceptional strategy to share with an audience of instructors seeking to excel? Presenters are encouraged to engage their audience for approximately 45 minutes through an interactive demonstration, so preference will be given to those submissions that specify how this engagement will be provided. The conference will hold opening and closing plenary sessions to focus on, reinforce, and synthesize those strategies that produce highly effective teaching.
