Education As Transformation
“What it means to be a teaching and learning institution?” That was the big question at the 17th Annual UW-Stevens Point Teaching Conference, Education As Transformation, held in the Alumni Room of the Dreyfus University Center on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. [Photo Gallery]
The Teaching Conference Planning Committee assembled various panel discussions and presentations that demonstrate UWSP’s ongoing commitment to quality teaching that leads to student success. With input from last year’s conference participants, as well as ongoing campus discussions, the planning committee identified four main sub-themes: Embracing Our Diverse Populations, Redefining The Classroom, Thinking About Teaching and Learning Through the New GEP Lens, and Reflecting On Our Teaching – A Scholarly Approach. Based on the proposals submitted by faculty and staff, this year’s program included concurrent sessions representing all four sub-themes.
Additionally, due to the impressive number of submissions, an extension of the conference has been proposed as a Teaching and Learning Series for this upcoming spring semester.
College of Professional Studies faculty presentations included:
- Paula DeHart (Education): What Does it Mean to be a Teaching Institution?
- Pam Terrell (Communicative Disorders) with Jim Joque and Marge Strong (Disability and Assistive Technology Center): Inclusive Excellence in the Classroom: Accommodating Students with Disabilities
- Kristi Roth (Physical Education & Athletic Training): Teaching with Technology: Apps, Websites, and Flipping a Class
- Christine Gould, Leslie McClain (Education) with Dona Warren: A Glimpse into the McCaig Files: A Primer on Being a University Teacher
