 12th Annual Conference: Innovative Pedagogy & Course Redesign XII

Collaborations for Empowerment and Learning

May 29 – 31, 2013

Fairfield, CT

Dear Colleagues:

Happy New Year to each of you.  I hope that your holidays were lovely, and that you are looking forward to a productive semester of learning and collaboration.

The Center for Academic Excellence at Fairfield University is hosting its 12th Annual Conference on Innovative Pedagogy and Course Redesign (May 29 – 31, 2013).  We celebrate and showcase excellence and innovations in all areas of teaching, faculty support and development, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and community-engaged teaching and scholarship. Our theme this is year Collaborations for Empowerment and Learning.   To this end, we have invited wonderful featured presenters to work with the attendees on areas of deep resonance for higher education teaching and learning (mentoring networks, peer review and publication of engaged scholarship, SoTL and collaboration as a tool for teaching).   Our Keynote Presenter is Dr. Mary Deane Sorcinelli, who plans a highly interactive session on mutual mentoring.  Drs. Kathy Jordan and Cathy Burack will address peer review and scholarly aspects of community-engaged work, and Dr. Katie Linder will focus on collaborations as tools for learning and teaching.  

We see this annual conference as an opportunity to learn from each other, to build connections and collaborations and to reflect upon the meaningfulness and impact of our work as educators and scholars. 

Welcome to our beautiful campus, and to our time together as colleagues and friends.

Please share this information with your colleagues, and suggest that they, in turn, feel welcome to extend our invitation to their relevant networks.
