Teaching And Learning Day 2020

2020 T+L Program

Teaching and Learning Day for 2020 was on January 10th from 8:30 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. in the CUB. 

Our focus the year was high-impact practices, and to do that we tried a different format. We have many faculty and staff at Stetson who are already making innovative use of high-impact practices to improve student learning. So instead of a guest speaker, we decided to showcase some of these people in a way that will encourage sharing ideas and having conversations across programs and departments.

This Teaching and Learning day was structured into workshop blocks led by members of the Stetson community on themes such as global learning, writing-intensive courses, community-engaged learning, internships, and learning communities. The schedule aimed to allow everyone to attend multiple workshops and hopefully jumpstart some new conversations about the ways we employ high-impact practices at Stetson.

All members of the Stetson faculty and staff were invited to attend. The morning started with breakfast available at 8:30 a.m. and concluded with a lunch served at 12:30 p.m.

Making Excellence Inclusive: Becoming A Student-Ready College

Dr. Tia Brown McNair currently serves as Vice President in the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Student Success at the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). Dr. Tia Brown McNair oversees both funded projects and AAC&U’s continuing programs on equity, inclusive excellence, high-impact educational practices, and student success, including AAC&U’s Network for Academic Renewal series of yearly working conferences. Read Dr. McNair’s complete bio on the AAC&U website

Dr. McNair will engage the Stetson University community in a conversation raised in a recently published book she co-authored,  Becoming a Student-Ready College . The national conversation asking “Are students college-ready?” concentrates on numerous factors that are beyond higher education’s control. This book flips the college readiness conversation to provide a new perspective on creating institutional value and facilitating student success. Instead of focusing on student preparedness for college (or lack thereof), this book asks the more pragmatic question of what are colleges and universities doing to prepare for the students who are entering their institutions? What must change in an institution’s policies, practices, and culture in order to be student-ready?

RSVP to save your spot!

A limited number of copies of Becoming a Student-Ready College will be made available to participants who wish to participate in book circles facilitated by the Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence.

He invited each of us to make use of our own experience to re-imagine our lives and our work in the context of ongoing change through successful, healthy strategies for addressing change and what we can each do to develop timely responses to change we are already experiencing in higher education and in our world, and as we prepare for our future and our students.
