The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology would like to thank everyone that submitted a proposal for the 2015 Teaching & Learning Symposium, Next Steps in Student Engagement. A committee of faculty and staff will begin to review submissions soon. If you submitted a proposal, you will hear from CTLT by the end of October. We hope you plan to join us for the event on January 7, 2015. Registration will open later this month.
Internationally known scholar, educator, and consultant, Dr. Elizabeth Barkley, will come to be the keynote speaker. Dr. Barkley’s book, Student Engagement Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty, focuses on the concern with student engagement and quality in higher education. Through academic research, theory and good practice literature, her book identifies over 100 practical tips, techniques, and strategies to help faculty engage their students in today’s collegiate classroom. Student Engagement Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty, explores the challenges that educators from across the country face every day to try to create a motivated and active learning environment for their students. Dr. Barkley is a Professor of Music at Foothill College in Los Altos, California, as well as the Founder and Coordinator of Fine Arts Individualized Study Center at Foothill College.
