Back to Class: Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century

Friday January 27th 2012      1:00 – 3:30 pm      TH253

How is teaching and learning in the 21st century different than teaching practices of earlier generations? What role do students play? What role does technology play? How does the community interact and engage with the university classroom?

Today’s professors and students not only engage in innovative pedagogies but also research the impact of those pedagogies. Join us on January 27th when 5 professors and 5 students share their teaching and learning insights and expertise. The recipients of the Brock University Chancellor’s Chairs for Teaching Excellence will facilitate roundtable sessions regarding their scholarly projects, which include an exploration of connecting students with the community, peer mentorship, service learning, and the pedagogical uses of video screen capture. In turn, students will host a roundtable at which they will share their perspectives on the impact of digital culture on their learning and their responses to experiential learning opportunities.

The afternoon will follow a roundtable discussion format and attendees are welcome to join a table for discussion according to their time and interests.

For more information, contact Dr. Barry W. K. Joe at ext. 4707 or Dr. Jill Grose at ext. 4392.
