The Provost’s Conversations on Teaching and Learning are open to all faculty members, and offer the opportunity to reflect and share about the teaching and learning process.

On Thursday, January 31, Maureen Stiner will lead a Conversation entitled “Employing Real-World Examples to Increase Student Engagement” from 12:30-1:30 in the Learning Commons Conference Room at Perry Library.

Maureen Stiner has been teaching at ODU as an Instructor of Finance since 1988, having worked both as a commercial loan officer with Philadelphia National Bank and as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch.  She teaches Corporate Finance and Investments.  She is a graduate of both Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and the University of Pittsburgh.

It is her belief that the more we can make our teaching relevant to our students’ daily lives, the more good we are doing as teachers.  She strives to use relevant practical examples to illustrate theories, and in so doing, hopes that she is giving her students not only an academic education, but stronger life skills, as well. 

In her Conversation, she will share some of the ways she has used real-world examples to engage students and to further their learning, and she hopes to hear some of her colleagues’ examples, as well.
