Simon Fraser University (SFU) Harbour Centre, Downtown Vancouver
- Registration is open
- Cost: $50 (includes, meals, refreshments, and a full day of speakers and sessions)
Like last year, we anticipate an informative and energetic day with colleagues exploring a variety of topics on scholarly activities in teaching and learning.
This year, we look forward to welcoming keynote speakers, Dr. Eric Davis from the University of the Fraser Valley and Teresa Dawson from the University of Victoria.
We have also expanded the topics (see: proposal strands) this year to include:
- Strand A: Scholarly Inquiry into Teaching & Learning Practice (active or completed scholarly inquiry projects, sharing methods and evidence)
- Strand B: Success Stories from Teaching & Learning Practice (sharing of stories, experiences, practices that are working well for student learning)
- Strand C: Research Bites (a fast-moving series of micro-presentations highlighting key aspects of your scholarly inquiry research)
Building on the sold-out success of last year’s Symposium, we are reuniting to explore and share our adventures in scholarly inquiry into our teaching and learning practice. Please plan to join us for a day of speakers, presentations, discussions and networking with colleagues who share an interest in research-based teaching and learning.
Intended Audience: All faculty (professors, teaching faculty, research faculty, instructors, sessional, and full time educators), teaching assistants and graduate students at all British Columbia post-secondary institutions. In addition, educational developers, directors, administration and research office staff, and colleagues from other post-secondary institutions are welcome.
