2nd Annual Summit on Teaching and Learning
The Division of Academic Affairs at Bryant University invites your participation in the 2nd Annual Summit on Teaching and Learning on Thursday, May 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The day will include presentations by Bryant faculty, a keynote and workshop by award winning educator Claire Major Howell, and opportunities for round-table discussions on important topics in our teaching community. Join your Bryant colleagues for a full day experience focused on student learning and teaching innovation!
Keynote Presentation by Dr. Claire Major Howard, Professor of Higher Education at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Recent research on motivation and learning indicates that for students to be successful, they have to value learning, they have to expect to succeed, and they have to be active participants in their learning. In this session, Professor Major will describe the cognitive principles of learning that foster student engagement. She will also identify active learning techniques for promoting it. Participants will learn about practical strategies for creating a course that fosters sustained attention and elicits students’ best work in various teaching contexts.
