Event Details

This year's fall faculty workshop will explore what it means to move from a teacher-centered to a learner-centered teaching paradigm. We will examine the research that supports a learner-centered pedagogy, and take up topics like rigor, the importance of content, power dynamics in the learner-centered classroom, and effective evaluation of students. And, we'll talk about resistance to learner-centered methods by faculty and students. It is a workshop not to be missed! 

Our workshop facilitator is Dr. Maryellen Weimer, professor emerita of Teaching and Learning at Penn State Berks. An award-winning teacher, Dr. Weimer has over 35 years' experience in college teaching. She has served as director of the Instructional Development Program at Pennsylvania State University, and also as associate director at the National Center on Postsecondary Teaching, Learning, and Assessment, a five-year, $5.9 million, U.S. Department of Education research and development center, whose primary goal was to understand the factors that facilitate student learning.  

Lunch will be provided for registered attendees; options are available when registering. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 319-273-2553 or feel free to bring your own lunch.
