How should higher education make good on the promise of learning?
The conference Crucial Conversations in Teaching and Learning, May 1 and 2 on the UWindsor campus, will provide a forum for administrators, instructors, students, and others to engage in conversations exploring the forces driving change in the post-secondary sector and the resulting tensions around purpose, pedagogy, curriculum, and evaluation.
Conferees will explore the practices, research, theories, and philosophies underlying:
- teaching and assessment methods;
- curriculum development;
- conflict and controversy in the academy;
- evaluation of teaching;
- Indigenization of the curriculum; and
- purposes of higher education.
Organizers have called for submissions by Feb. 25 in the following formats:
- 90-minute workshops;
- 40-minute concurrent sessions;
- 40-minute facilitated conversations;
- 15-minute paper presentations; or
- poster presentations.
