Executive Dining Room
10/31/2013 1:00PM - 2:00PM
‘Teacher of the Year’ award recipients have been invited to participate in a panel discussion about teaching effectively and engaging in scholarship and student learning. SPSU faculty members will get a chance to share their teaching philosophies. Audience will get an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas with their peers and colleagues. Panelists will not discuss any specifics of their discipline but will discuss teaching methodologies and pedagogy in general. Panelists will be asked to address the following questions:

1. In your experience, what are some of the techniques one can use to engage students and keep them excited about the class?
2. What are some of the things a professor should not do that could potentially make the classes dull or tedious?
3. How do you think our faculty should get involved in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

These will be followed by other Q&As and discussions with the audience. The session includes a reception for all participants.
