2nd Annual Teaching and Learning Conference at DSU

2nd Annual Teaching and Learning Conference at DSU

April 8, 2016

Theme – Active Learning: Expanding Student Knowledge and Understanding

On April 8, 2016 The Center for Teaching & Learning and the Teaching and Learning Committee joined together to offer the 2nd Annual Teaching and Learning Conference at Dixie State University. The purpose of the conference was to provide an opportunity for DSU faculty and staff to share and learn new teaching and learning best practices, innovations, and lessons learned to promote the scholarship of teaching and learning on campus. The response was amazing! We had over 30 presentations scheduled over the course of the conference, with some faculty members giving two or three presentations. We were privileged to have Dr. Sandy Petersen and Dr. Richard Featherstone present as the keynote speaker. One hundred fifty faculty and staff joined us throughout the day to listen to and learn from their colleagues. We know that many faculty wished to attend, but due to scheduling conflicts, were unable to attend. For the benefit of those who could not attend and those that would like a refresher on the conference, below is the schedule of events with videos for each presentation coming soon. Unfortunately the roundtable session could not be recorded, however we were able to include any handouts provided. Please enjoy the videos and presentations put together by the great faculty and staff at Dixie State University.
