|Registration deadline for Reflecting on Teaching is Oct. 1|
The Office of Instructional Development and the Vice President for Academic Affairs are pleased to sponsor UND’s third biennial Reflecting on Teaching Colloquium to be held Friday, Oct. 16, and Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Memorial Union. The colloquium is a cross campus event, designed for the sharing of ideas about teaching and teaching related research with colleagues from UND and the region. Colloquium attendees can expect to hear individual presentations and panels, discuss posters and teaching strategies, and take part in open forums. Over 50 UND faculty members, representing all colleges, will be sharing their expertise on a wide range of topics related to teaching and learning. Saturday morning will feature a hands-on workshop for those interested in engaging in or expanding teaching-related research.
The Reflecting on Teaching Colloquium also features nationally recognized scholar, John Tagg. Over the past decade, Tagg has made presentations and conducted workshops for dozens of campuses and organizations. Recently, he worked with the Pew Forum on Undergraduate Learning and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. Tagg is as a provocative forward looking thinker who asks us to consider the most basic questions. For example, what is college for? Tagg applies the wealth of research on teaching and learning to finding answers. Further information on Professor Tagg, and his keynote and Saturday workshop, as well as the poster and concurrent sessions is found at the OID website.
In additional to a full schedule of events the Colloquium also offers many opportunities for informal discussion and conversation over breakfast, lunch, and a concluding reception at the North Dakota Museum of Art. Since we will need a headcount for these food-related events, we are asking you to register through the on-line form on the OID web site by Oct. 1, letting us know which ones you plan to attend. Or, if you won’t be joining us for the meals or reception, just register on-site. We hope to see you there.
