CEG Symposium

Curriculum Enhancement Grant Symposium, Keynote by Brian Coppola

Thursday, October 17, 2013 | University Library Lilly Auditorium | 2 - 6 p.m.
Register» | Organizer: Terri Tarr | Presenter: Brian Coppola

Held to honor and celebrate the successes of the 2012 Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) awardees, the 2013 CEG Symposium will feature a keynote address by Brian Coppola, award-winning Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Chemistry from the University of Michigan, titled Lessons from Three Decades of Subversion in which he will review a set of four simple teaching principles that, in today’s climate, might seem subversive.  The event also will feature poster presentations by 2012 CEG recipients, a reception, and a drawing for five free copies of the book Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

The purpose of the CEG initiative is to provide faculty with support, time, and resources to implement projects designed to improve student learning and success. In addition, it is expected that the grants will increase faculty competitiveness for external educational or curricular improvement grants and increase the number of faculty involved in pursuing the scholarship of teaching and learning. For more information on the CEG initiative and the 2012 awardees and their projects, go to http://ctl.iupui.edu/programs/CEG

All faculty are encouraged to attend the CEG symposium, but especially those who are planning to apply for CEG funding in the future.

Keynote Address and Q&A, 2:30 - 3:45 p.m.

Have you hesitated to adopt an ePortfolio because learning the new tools sounds like a lot of extra work for you and your students? Can the benefits possibly outweigh the perceived burden of becoming your students’ technology tutor? Several IUPUI trailblazers will describe their strategies for applying peer mentoring and social pedagogies so your students can help one another. This workshop will also walk you through the numerous resources available on campus and online to help your students learn how to build their portfolios. Come prepared to share concerns and ideas with colleagues from other schools and divisions. Presenters will include Susan Scott, ePortfolio Coordinator; Kim Murday, UITS IT Training; Brandi Gilbert, Director of Life-Health Sciences Internship Program (LHSI); and John Fierst and Jessica Leitzell, LHSI Intern Ambassadors.
