University of Windsor-Oakland University Teaching and Learning Conference: Empowering Students to Learn

May 14-15, 2014   |   |   Oakland University, Rochester, MI
Proposal Deadline: February 7

John Tagg and Stephen Carroll will be the keynote presenters for the 2014 University of Windsor (ON) and Oakland University (MI) Teaching and Learning Conference in Rochester, MI, USA, May 14 and 15.

John Tagg’s book The Learning Paradigm College (2003) describes a research-based approach to redesigning higher education in the service of student learning.  His model shifts the teaching mission from “instruction” toward the goal of “successful student learning for every student.” He has conducted workshops and presentations at more than 100 colleges and universities and has published in many higher education periodicals including Change, About Campus, Planning for Higher Education, and The International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. He is professor emeritus of English at Palomar College, where he taught from 1982 until 2009.

Stephen Carroll’s work focuses on intersections of pedagogy, technology, assessment, writing, and learning. His career-long involvement in faculty development includes founding and developing a teaching center at UC Berkeley, publications in books about teaching, and dozens of presentations on teaching and learning at national conferences. He has directed writing programs at Berkeley and Santa Clara University (SCU), where he has recently served as the Faculty Director for a Residential Learning Community.

This year’s conference, themed Empowering Student Learning, will explore how and what students learn; the different pedagogies that empower student learning; and the many ways that we can assess learning.  The conference will feature workshops, concurrent sessions, and in addition to a traditional poster session, an Instructional Fair, which invites instructors to showcase a specific teaching strategy.

Proposals are welcome from instructors, academic administrators, staff, and students from post-secondary institutions.  The deadline for submissions February 7, 2014.
