The Art of Teaching: Lunchtime Seminar Series

Join us on the first Thursdays of the month from 12pm-1pm as we welcome new faculty, new stories, and new ways of thinking about the art of teaching.

The Art of Teaching Lunchtime Seminar Series features inspiring faculty from across the disciplines sharing their thoughts and strategies about the art and science of teaching and learning. In the first semester (Spring 2021) we showcased CITL Faculty Fellows and some of the research they have been doing on their teaching. In the second semester (Fall 2021) we featured faculty who are early in their careers sharing tools and strategies they are still developing. In the third semester (Spring 2022) we looked at alternative approaches to teaching and learning that included social justice, game-based pedagogy, and newer approaches to assessment. In the fourth semester (Fall 2022), we returned to the theme of faculty research with exemplary presenters sharing how they are conducting research on their teaching or using research to inform their teaching.

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist . . . Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit. (John Steinbeck)

February 2: Engaging in Continuous Improvement Through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Jenny Amos (Bioengineering)

We all know that what works for one instructor in one classroom might not work in another setting. Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) can inform our teaching practice and provide evidence of whether course changes lead to more effective learning. In this talk, Jenny Amos will share her experiences getting started in the continuous improvement of her courses through SoTL.

 
All sessions will continue to be recorded and presenter materials gathered. For more information, or to suggest a speaker for the series, please contact Emily Forbes at eforbes2@illinois.edu.
