CEG Symposium

Curriculum Enhancement Grant Symposium, Keynote by Brian Coppola

Thursday, October 17, 2013 | University Library Lilly Auditorium | 2 - 6 p.m.
Register» | Organizer: Terri Tarr | Presenter: Brian Coppola

Held to honor and celebrate the successes of the 2012 Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) awardees, the 2013 CEG Symposium will feature a keynote address by Brian Coppola, award-winning Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Chemistry from the University of Michigan, titled Lessons from Three Decades of Subversion in which he will review a set of four simple teaching principles that, in today’s climate, might seem subversive.  The event also will feature poster presentations by 2012 CEG recipients, a reception, and a drawing for five free copies of the book Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

The purpose of the CEG initiative is to provide faculty with support, time, and resources to implement projects designed to improve student learning and success. In addition, it is expected that the grants will increase faculty competitiveness for external educational or curricular improvement grants and increase the number of faculty involved in pursuing the scholarship of teaching and learning. For more information on the CEG initiative and the 2012 awardees and their projects, go to http://ctl.iupui.edu/programs/CEG

All faculty are encouraged to attend the CEG symposium, but especially those who are planning to apply for CEG funding in the future.
