Focus on Teaching and Learning: August 2019
Call for Proposals
August 2019 THEME - Here and Now: Exploring Context
This year's Focus on Teaching and Learning (FOTL) is focused on considering context as it relates to teaching and learning. Context may include institutional factors along with place, time, the Jesuit Catholic mission, and factors beyond the university, such as technology and characteristics of today's students. How does context influence strategies for how you teach, design courses, and create learning and student formation experiences?
Submit a proposal to share what you are doing, how it is working, and what you would like to explore further in regard to your teaching and learning strategies. Let’s generate more dialogue and build our professional communities of practice around teaching and learning! FOTL is scheduled for August 15, 2019 at the Loyola Lake Shore Campus in the Rogers Park/Edgewater communities.
We are seeking sessions in a variety of formats from individuals and groups. Submit your proposal by May 6, 2019. A small committee of faculty and staff will evaluate the proposals. Proposal criteria consists of a clear session description including how it relates to the theme and teaching and learning, three learning outcomes, and an outline of engaging strategies to facilitate the session.
