Center for Teaching and Learning

Teaching & Learning Symposium

Tuesday, April 19, 2016
2:00 – 4:30 p.m.
HUB Ballroom – UW Seattle

About the Symposium

Many at UW are actively engaged in examining how teaching affects student learning – the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) research.  Each spring the Center for Teaching and Learning hosts the annual UW Teaching and Learning Symposium to provide a forum where all who share this interest can learn of their colleagues’ work and engage in discussion.  The event includes a keynote talk and two poster sessions.  Posters presented each year range from classroom/action research to published SoTL research.

Keynote: “Doing Race & Equity Pedagogy”

This year’s keynote highlights the scholarship of UW instructors — from three disciplines and three campuses — who use race and equity to inform their teaching and research.

Keynote speakers:

Wayne Au

Wayne Au, School of Educational Studies, UW Bothell

Christine Stevens

Christine Stevens, Nursing & Healthcare Leadership, UW Tacoma

Joyce Yen

Joyce Yen, ADVANCE, UW Seattle
