The theme for this, the fourth annual meeting of TYCA-GA is “Buzzwords that Work.” All of us have heard them: engagement, active learning, flipped classroom, sustainability, project-based learning, service learning, community-based learning, hybrids, retention and transfer, faculty advising--and at least ten others that we could name. Is there a particular buzzword that you have implemented successfully? If so, please consider presenting your findings and sharing information at TYCA-GA.
The committee is interested in reading proposals for individual and panel presentations that concern themselves with new and engaging classroom practices. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to
- Assignments that take students out of traditional classroom settings
- Service/Active/Project-based learning
- Problem-based learning strategies
- Hurdles/challenges that you see that hinder engagement
- Engaging uses of technologies
- Advising and retention strategies
- Any other methodology that you have implemented successfully.
The conference fee is $10 and will cover registration, the TYCA-GA annual membership fee, and a light brunch.
All faculty who teach freshman and sophomore classes (regardless of discipline or two or four-year college designation) are invited to attend and to submit proposals.
