Posted on March 7, 2017 | Filed under General News

Each May the FS Leadership Team sponsors a workshop on topics related to teaching, learning, pedagogical innovation, and/or advising. While in the past we have typically invited outside experts to facilitate the workshop, last year we invited Allegheny faculty and staff to present on innovative approaches and practices that were already being used on campus. The response to this workshop approach was very positive, and so we are once again opening up an opportunity for us to learn from each other. The plan for the Monday, May 15, 2017, workshop is a conference-style format with concurrent 50-minute sessions. Each session will be offered several times during the full-day program to ensure participants (including those leading sessions) have the opportunity to engage in discussions of multiple topics.

Topics for sessions should be connected to teaching, learning, pedagogical innovation, and/or advising. Such topics might include: innovative course and/or assignment designs, community-engaged pedagogies, methods of evaluating oral and/or written communication (e.g., portfolios, grading contracts), group advising, incorporating peer feedback, adaptive advising, or approaches to achieving curricular/co-curricular integration and cohesion.
