Let's Talk About Teaching
Connecting: Building Relationships | August 30- September 1, 2022
Let’s Talk about Teaching is three days of conversations, networking, and concurrent sessions led by UVic instructors and Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation staff for all faculty, instructors, and lecturers at UVic. Everyone is welcome and the event is free for all UVic instructors.
Here are some comments from past attendees speaking to their experience of this event:
“I appreciated the reminder that pedagogical structure, supported by repetition, is a key tool for helping students understand and retain what they are learning. I will try to present better outlines of my course content that reiterate the course’s structure during the semester.”
“(The conference) had a very strong research base and practical application to teaching. I’ve implemented something into my teaching from all the sessions I attended. Having attended many of these professional development workshops, this was one of the best.”
“I learned some student engagement activities (especially helpful for large class – i.e., 70 students) which I plan to use this semester.”
“I actually facilitated one of the workshops and was impressed by how it resonated with people… with some of the participants asking for resources.”
