The 2015 Teaching and Learning Conference is set to once again offer attendees an excellent variety of informative presentations, workshops and panel discussions. Engineering-specific sessions are noted below; review the draft conference program (PDF) for additional conference details.

Morning options include presentations by Andrew Trivett (MME) and Judi Jewinski (Office of the Provost) on discipline-specific writing skills, Gordon Stubley (MME) and Donna Ellis (CTE) on strategies to support student motivation, Carolyn MacGregor (SYDE) on student participation in group projects, and Dave Wang (ECE) on the student transition to university.

After lunch at the newly renovated Fed Hall, Mary Robinson (First Year Office), Christine Moresoli (CHE), and Cheryl Newton & Lyndia Ellen Stacey (both of WCDE) will present on the use of case studies in a technical elective; Jason Grove & Marios Ioannidis (both of CHE) will present on foundational discipline-specific skills; and Pat Quinlan (CHE) will discuss ethics and communication skills in a first-year course. There is also a panel discussion on the Engineering Ideas Clinic with Sanjeev Bedi & Andrew Trivett (both of MME), Jason Grove (CHE), Ada Hurst (MSCI), and Bill Bishop (ECE).

The popular Igniting our Practice session will feature sample lessons from across campus. Greta Kroeker from the Department of History, Troy Vasiga from the School of Computer Science, and Jonathan Witt from Biology will each teach a concept from their own courses. Lunch is included in your registration.

Engineering members had a strong representation at the 2014 conference, and we hope to see you there April 30.
