Join a stirring and content-rich discussion of college and university teaching addressing:
- What has learning science research discovered over the past decade that can improve teaching substantially?
- How does great quality teaching vary by discipline?
- What technological tools and methods have been developed recently that can enhance teaching?
- How do students from different backgrounds and with different types of preparation benefit from various instructional techniques?
- To what degree is student learning a result of teachers’ mastery of their discipline and command of pedagogy rather than individual student engagement and preparation?
- How can assessment data be used to increase student learning?
- What incentives should be offered for improvements in college and university teaching quality?
