Sessions will be offered via self-paced recordings as well as live sessions; and will be focused on the challenges and triumphs of moving online.

2018 Conference on Teaching Innovation

DYC’s first Conference on Teaching Innovation took place on May 22 with over 50 campus and non-DYC attendees. The morning took place in our Kavinoky Theater with 8 faculty members presenting their “Classroom Moments”, short story-style talks about their Aha! classroom moments. After lunch, attendees got a chance to select from a list of active workshop sessions. Many faculty commented that they enjoyed the informally formal space of the Kavinoky Theater to hear diverse perspectives of their fellow faculty members. One faculty member commented that the conference was a great “platform for sharing pedagogical experiences”. Thank you to everyone who presented and attended.
