Join us for summer sun and fun as we explore some of the basic yet critical questions in teaching and learning:

Students…

How do we get them here? How do we keep them here? How do we send them off having learned?

This year’s Summer Series on Teaching Learning takes place August 14-16, 2018. In these sessions, we will hear and challenge the different and often opposing perspectives of students and instructors on questions surrounding engagement, motivation, and assessment.

Active Learning: What Happens When It All Falls Apart?

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Tuesday, August 14, 2018, 09:00 AM – 01:00 PM
Location: Medical Education Building, Room 3102
Instructors: Judy Bornais, Erika Kustra, Peter Marval, Milana Milivojevic, Zikra Nilam, William (Bill) Wellington
Teaching and learning research tells us that active teaching strategies are sure to lead to deep learning. What happens when this seemingly simple recipe falls apart?

In morning workshops, we’ll hear from students about their preferred teaching methods, why they might resist some and not others, and a few of the learning obstacles they’ve encountered. We’ll also hear from faculty about areas of tension they’ve faced in their teaching and activities they’ve used to support student learning.

Student Distractions: Who is Responsible for Engagement?

Registration for this event is now closed.

Location: Medical Education Building, Room 3102
Instructors: Elizabeth Ismail , Sara Santarossa , Mariam Ageli, Tanya Noel, Jade Roy
Whether competing with social media, side conversations, or personal and professional obligations, instructors are having trouble keeping students’ attention. On the other hand, students are overwhelmed by workload demands and at the same, charting their careers and personal lives. Quite frankly, who is responsible for student engagement?

In this session, we’ll hear from both students and faculty about the types of activities they employ to meet this responsibility.

Instructors: Erica Stevens Abbitt, Pravina Bhatt, Pierre Boulos, Samantha Burton, Paige Coyne, Eliu Austin Mejia, Lisa Salfi, Danielle Soulliere
Faculty spend a lot of time designing assessments and providing feedback. And students spend hours studying and juggling multiple classes with competing deadlines. What, in the end, are we learning - on both sides?

In this session, we’ll hear faculty stories on innovative assessments, and feedback practices designed to give students every opportunity to succeed and learn. Students will provide insights into challenges they’ve faced, and assessment and feedback practices that have supported them most.
