Conversations with Colleagues: February
February 16, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PMFree
Topic: Student-centered Learning
Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) launched a peer cohort designed to increase student-centered teaching practices in the online, hybrid, and/or technology-rich classroom. Seventy-five faculty participants are engaging in peer conversations, resource sharing, and supported opportunities to practice new instructional strategies that aim to support MSUM’s efforts around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Cohort participants are exploring ways to improve course design, engage students in dynamic learning experiences, and provide authentic feedback.
Please join this conversation to share your thoughts on what are the key components of a student-centered learning experience and how it might have a positive impact on students.
When colleagues readied themselves for emergency remote teaching this spring, we all received a powerful reminder in the value of social learning. Colleagues from across the system who had been separated from one another through physical distance came together online to share ideas and learn from one another. We would like to sustain this social learning through Conversations with Colleagues, a program for those who are interested in connecting with one another.
Meet new faculty, gather with long-time friends from across Minnesota State, and bring questions and ideas (along with your lunch) to these monthly gatherings that will include conversation starters and an opportunity for both large and small group conversations. Additionally, you’ll be able to add your name to a searchable list of faculty and staff who are willing to share their expertise and areas of interest with others.
