Presentations to showcase scholarship of teaching, learning

Brock University Chancellor’s Chairs for Teaching Excellence recipients will share insights into their ongoing teaching and learning projects through a series of presentations.

Selected by Brock’s Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI), Chair recipients undertake a funded three-year program of research and practice leading to a significant development in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The upcoming presentations will see recipients share their findings so far.

On Thursday, March 7, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., Lab Demonstrator Nick Wilson and Lab Supervisor Martin Dragan will share about undergraduate human anatomy learning approaches, while Assistant Professor of Nursing Elizabeth Orr will discuss co-designing a transition to professional practice nursing course.

The series of presentations includes asynchronous sessions from Assistant Professor of Educational Studies Mohammed Estaiteyeh about empowering teacher candidates in a digital world and Associate Professor of Recreation and Leisure Studies Colleen Whyte about designing meaningful capstone experiences in therapeutic recreation.

CPI’s Director of Teaching and Learning Giulia Forsythe said she continues to be inspired by the care and attention Brock researchers give towards scholarly teaching.

“This latest group of Chancellor’s Chairs for Teaching excellence showcase innovative pedagogies and I’m delighted they will be sharing their work at this Scholarship of Teaching and Learning event,” she said.
