Have you ever put in a ton of work to overhaul a class? How about committee work to assess a program? This work is often thankless and goes unnoticed. The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning and the Provosts’ Office seek to change that with an event specifically designed to spotlight this important work. The Fall Showcase will bring together bring (asynchronously) some of our most creative minds and highlight their work at investigating the effectiveness of teaching and learning strategies.
The fall showcase will be a virtual poster session. Presenters will submit a virtual poster (on a PowerPoint template provided by the Center) along with a short description of their work. This description will stand-in for the “spiel” that one might give in a live poster session in a face-to-face event.
Attendees and presenters will be able to interact through VoiceThread.
In this way we hope to simulate the give-and-take of a live poster session.
Examples of submissions may include UW-Green Bay Teaching Scholars projects, UW Teaching Fellows and Scholars projects, scholarly teaching efforts, or creative attempts at changing assignments to deal with pandemic circumstances.
Since this is a multi-stage event, there are multiple deadlines:
- Deadline to apply for presenters: Sep. 25
- CATL will notify presenters by Oct. 2 and include presentation kit (template and guidelines for talking points, etc.)
- Deadline to submit presentation: Oct. 16
- The Center will prepare the online gallery of presentations
- Open comment period for attendees: Oct. 20–Oct. 23
- Attendees and presenters will engage in back-and-forth regarding topics
Email a brief description of the project you would like to present along with a summary of the methods you used and your findings (it is o.k. to submit anticipated findings).
Send your email to email@example.com
Individuals or groups who have engaged in educational research, scholarship of teaching and learning, scholarly teaching, or innovative assessment practices.
The Fall Showcase will be a virtual poster session that highlights the scholarly teaching on campus. This work is rigorous and often goes unnoticed. We seek to bring it out into the light for the attention it deserves. So, if you have put work into a scholarship of teaching and learning project, this showcase is for you. It is also for you if you have put in a work on a departmental assessment project; prepared for an accreditation visit; or done a creative redesign of an assignment or course to deal with pandemic circumstances. In short we are looking for the creative and rigorous ways that you have worked on to improve your teaching and your students’ learning. See the full call for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Submissions are due Sep. 25.
Looking for a place to talk with colleagues and get some work done? The solidarity cafe is a place for you.
Participants in our summer cohorts asked for a place to talk about teaching this fall and share stories about what’s working at the cafe is our response
This cafe will be a virtual place, open to anyone who wants to drop in and chat with colleagues, work on assignments, share in successes, and swap tricks of the trade for teaching in these new environments. There won’t be live music, but there might be some live discussions. If you are looking for a place where we can support, learn from, and connect with each other in a semi-structured environment, the solidarity cafe is for you. Look for more information on how to join in upcoming Teach Tuesday emails.
While instructors are busily re-connecting with students, the Center also wants to help instructors and staff re-connect with one another.
We are organizing a series of “Coffee Klatches” where your colleagues will be offering answers the question: “What are you doing?” with a series of curated discussions.
Hope to see you all there!
