The theme for the 29th Showcase on Teaching and Learning is “Facilitating Student Engagement and Deep Learning.”
This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Deborah Allen, Professor of Biological Sciences and one of the founding institute leaders from the University of Delaware’s Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education. The motivation to learn begins with a problem. For more than ten years the University of Delaware has encouraged the adoption of student-centered and active classroom pedagogies, particularly in the area of problem-based learning in undergraduate studies. Dr. Allen will talk about the use of problem-based learning to achieve deeper learning and the pedagogies of student engagement.
