March 31 Is Deadline for Faculty Summer Institute Presentation Proposals


Proposals are due Monday, March 31, to present a paper, to participate in a panel discussion with colleagues or to lead a roundtable discussion or workshop at the Center for Learning and Teaching's (CLT) 16th Annual Faculty Summer Institute on Teaching and Learning. Accepted proposals will be announced in early April.

CLT invites all research, teaching and adjunct faculty from ODU and across Virginia to attend and/or to present at the Summer Institute, "Online and Face-to-Face Teaching: Realizing the Best of Both Worlds," which will be held in Webb Center May 20-21.

Chris Dede, the Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies at Harvard University's Graduate School of Education, is the keynote speaker. Dede's fields of scholarship include emerging technologies, policy and leadership. In 2007, he was honored by Harvard as an outstanding teacher, and in 2011 he was named a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association.

This year's Summer Institute is organized around five themes. Each theme may include presentations of papers, panel discussions, roundtable discussions or workshops. CLT is currently seeking presenters who are willing to share their personal teaching and learning journeys, including both ups and downs. The themes are:

  • Faculty Learning Communities: Sharing Ideas to Realize the Best of Both Worlds
  • Reflecting About Your Own Teaching Practices: Your Personal Transition Toward Online Environments
  • Involving Your Students: An Active Learning Approach
  • Course Design: Strategies for Both Face-to-Face and Online Teaching
  • Workshop: Teaching and Learning Strategies or Hands-on Technologies.

Details about the themes, session types, forms for submitting proposals and further details for registering to attend are available online: CLT Faculty Summer Institute
