The Lucas Center for Faculty Development’s first annual Symposium for Teaching and Learning was a huge success. The day kicked off with a keynote speech from Dr. Linda Nilson from Clemson University. The keynote was attended by more than 50 faculty and staff members and can be viewed at: Linda Nilson Keynote Speech. The day-long event had 17 breakout sessions where faculty presented a hands-on activity the attendees could adapt for their classrooms. A poster session of 26 faculty-created teaching guides lined the common area of the Symposium with activities, assignments or lessons. The teaching guides are located on the Lucas Center website and can be accessed at: Teaching Guides. The day concluded with Dr. Nilson leading a hands-on workshop titled “Ensuring and Assessing the Learning in Authentic Experiential Learning”. The workshop was attended by 25 faculty members, which was followed by a book signing where faculty had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Nilson.
