Albion College Symposium on Teaching and Student Learning
Saturday, March 26, 2022, 1:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m at Seeley-Mudd Library
2022 Theme: Inclusive Teaching and Student Success
The 2022 Albion College Symposium on Teaching and Student Learning acknowledges the distinctive contributions of faculty and staff to teaching and student learning on campus. The event’s guiding assumption is that by sharing and discussing our particular roles, Albion College staff and faculty will be better able to do the important work of shaping the minds and spirits of Albion College students. This year’s theme is inclusive teaching and student success. We seek and welcome a variety of presentation topics that address the theme.
There are three ways to participate in the symposium.
*Please register to present by December 21, 2021. Register to attend by March 11, 2022.
*The user will need to log into their albion.edu gmail account in order to register.
Attend and Discuss
You can attend, listen, and join the conversation but not officially present.
Present a Poster
You can present a poster about teaching or student learning. Our definition of a poster is broad: it is any kind of visual or aural object used to spark a discussion about teaching or student learning. That object might be the kind of wall-hanging posters you would see in a poster session at an academic or professional conference, or it might be a work of art, a letter from a parent, a spreadsheet, a bridle and saddle, or a lacrosse stick. If it’s an object that sparks a discussion about teaching or student learning, it’s a poster.
Present a Five and Done
Back by popular demand: Five-and-Done Presentations. A limited number of individuals (chosen randomly from those who express interest, with a preference for folks who didn’t do one last time) will take the stage for no more than five minutes to share some insight about teaching or student learning, using whatever form of expression the person likes—a mini-lecture, puppet show, monologue, whatever. The rules are pretty simple: you’ve got five minutes, and then you’re done.
