The Fall Showcase (October 2020)

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.

What

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

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.

Timeline

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
