|Models sought for innovative practices in teaching and learning|
Do you have a classroom strategy that really engages students and gets them excited about learning? Is there a teaching method or approach that you developed as a result of inquiry into learning in your class that has been particularly successful? Have you developed online assignments in creating a class for the ES program that accomplish significant learning around broader goals or an approach that works well to teach key concepts or ways of thinking to your majors or graduate students?
For the last few years, we have been gathering models of good practices to feature some of the many great things happening in UND classrooms. We are asking you to add your insights into the mix by letting us know about the effective and/or innovative teaching and learning strategies that you have developed for our students. Our intent is to both acknowledge this good work and compile inspiring models for others. We are sharing them on campus to ground ongoing conversations on best teaching practices, and we also hope that over time this collection might grow into something larger for an audience external to UND.
The proposal deadline for 2010 is Feb. 1 and the guidelines are available online at
