In this new professional learning experience, we’ll focus in on the challenges and rewards facing us in our teaching today, and explore approaches that will allow greater success in teaching diverse learners, while enabling students to successfully demonstrate their learning.Through activities, cases, short readings, and the experiences that participants bring to discussions, we have designed an exciting learning experience for teaching faculty at VIU. We will explore ideas and principles related to VIU’s institutional goals: building a community that fosters participation and engagement for all; collaboration in learning; consideration of diverse perspectives; reflection and self-awareness; civic engagement; and maintaining an environment of respect.‘Teaching the Students of Today’ will be of particular interest to faculty members who want time outside of the classroom to reflect on their teaching practice, share experiences and approaches with colleagues, and re-familiarize themselves with their core set of values as educators.We are encouraging faculty to sign up for the entire learning event by attending all four face-to-face Friday sessions from 8:30 – 11:30 am (Jan 26, Feb 9, March 2 and March 16). We’ll also ask faculty to engage in some online readings and reflections between weeks to help consolidate and apply the concepts and discussions. During our final Friday meeting we will revisit what we have covered in the course, consolidate what we have learned, and award certificates to participants who have successfully completed all elements with us.More information can be found at Teaching Students of Today*Teaching the Students of Today is part of VIU’s new Recognition of Achievements in Teaching and Learning Program.
