Registration is now open for the 28th Showcase on Teaching and Learning, which will be held on Wednesday, August 14, 2013. The theme for this year’s Showcase is Passion. Inspiration. Innovation. Sessions will focus on instructional strategies and best practices for motivating and engaging students.
Ken Bain, author of the best-selling books, “What the Best College Teachers Do” (2004) and “What the Best College Students Do” (2012), will be the keynote speaker at the Showcase luncheon. Bain is recognized around the world for his research in deep and sustained learning and the creation of natural critical learning environments. He combines academic research on learning and motivation with insights drawn from interviews with faculty and highly successful individuals. His most recent work identifies the key attitudes that distinguish the best college students from their peers and has been awarded the 2012 Virginia and Warren Stone prize as an outstanding book on education and society.
