University Library UL 0130
The IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invites faculty and instructional staff of all ranks and appointment types to Scholars Teaching for Student Success: What Works, What’s Next, an event on October 4, 2019, featuring nationally recognized teaching researcher, Dr. Kimberly Tanner, presenting a research seminar on Collectively Improving our Teaching and a workshop on Order Matters: Becoming Metacognitive about Teaching Choices and Teaching for Brain Changing. Kimberly Tanner is a Professor of Biology and the Director of The Science Education Partnership and Assessment Laboratory at San Francisco State University. A poster session and reception will feature the 2018 Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) scholars presenting their project results.
Dr. Tanner will engage her audiences in looking at what her research shows works as well as the broader approaches that enhance teaching in general and lead to work that is genuinely scholarly and effective. Both her specific research results and her sustained career in examining what works best in classrooms offer faculty a way into improving their work as university instructors. Participants will also see examples of effective and locally significant scholarly teaching in the posters presented by the 2018 CEG scholars.
Both Dr. Tanner’s work and the local achievements of the CEG scholars articulate the values and essential elements of scholarly teaching and promise an opportunity for instructors to contribute to student success as scholarly teachers. As Indiana University moves toward strengthening the presence and the profile of scholarly teaching, this CTL event offers an opportunity for all responsible for the University’s teaching mission to expand their broad sense of what is possible for scholarly teachers as well as focus on specific ideas for creating evidence-based instructional strategies that ensure student success.
The event will take place on October 4, 2019, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in University Library UL 0130 (Lilly Auditorium) and in UL 1116.
