2018 Distinguished Educators in Teaching as Scholarship Breakfast:
Embracing Learning for Life

(Friday, Feb. 23; 8:00-9:30 a.m.; Skutt SC, Room 105; breakfast provided)

Jesuit education values “life-long learning,” and Creighton University’s faculty both embody and promote a “life of learning,” for themselves, their students, and our alums.  Blending Jesuit values and High Impact Educational Practices, the 2018 Distinguished Educators employ evidence-based practices to ensure students’ professional successes.  Drs. Julie Manz (College of Nursing) and Maya Khanna (College of Arts and Sciences, Psychology Department) began their teaching careers outside of higher education; these early lessons and a scholarly approach to student learning have informed their curricular innovations and positively impacted their students’ professional development and disciplinary activities. 

You are invited to hear these national experts share their insights and stories as we celebrate with each of them as the 2018 Distinguished Educators in Teaching as Scholarship recipients.  Join our conversation as we discuss teaching pedagogies and student learning and address such questions as:

  • How do you respond to colleagues who are challenged by the ‘active learning’ paradigms, with an emphasis that it takes too much time (away from lecturing)?

  • While many consider exams as summative evaluations, your work with exams/assessments of learning has taken a more formative or creative approach.  Can you explain what you do and why you consider it more effective in advancing student learning and/or your instructional practices?

  • Even as your scholarly work informs your respective disciplines, what have your students and colleagues taught you about active or experiential learning, testing and evaluation, or curricular models?

Please join us Friday, Feb. 23; 8:00-9:30 a.m., Skutt 105 for a lively discussion as we (audience participation expected) engage in, reflect on and evaluate our pedagogies and programmatic practices leading to student success. Breakfast will be provided. 

Reservations required.
