This year, we will host our first D’Youville Conference on Teaching Innovation. The event will be focused on six major concerns: exemplary pedagogy, technology-infused instruction, outcome-based assessment, inclusive strategies, research and scholarship, and faculty wellness. The morning will take place in our historic Kavinoky Theater and will feature our “Classroom Moments” series, short story-style talks about Aha! classroom moments that made our speakers pause. After lunch, attendees will get a chance to select from a list of active workshop sessions. Speakers are being added to our site daily. Registration is open to the public and FREE for DYC Faculty.

“SYNTHESIZING CRITICAL PEDAGOGY AND CREATIVITY” D’Youville College is hosting THATCamp Buffalo on May 23. A THATCamp is a conference for educators to explore the critical integration of technology into their teaching. The morning will be comprised of focused “Boot Camp” sessions. An initial brainstorming session will lead to any number of possible presentations in the afternoon. It is all up to the group. Come with a curiosity and leave with answers and strategies from the collective. FREE for DYC Faculty. >>>Register today!
