2014 Theme: Muses, Motivation, Meaning: Finding a student’s “sticking point”

Marshall University, Huntington, WV

Tuesday, August 19, 2014



This year’s conference theme invites Marshall faculty to consider how students form relationships with the content of our respective disciplines. What inspires our students to engage? A good story? A personal connection? Curiosity? Freedom to be creative? Cultural relevance? Modeling? Prior competence? In short, what can we do to get the content to “stick” for our students? The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to invite all full-time and part-time faculty, teaching assistants, and interested academic staff to participate in roundtables, interactive demonstrations, and workshops.

Because many sessions run concurrently and meeting space is limited, advance registration is required by noon on Friday, August 15, 2014. Please review the full program above and use the online registration portal below to select the concurrent sessions you wish to attend.
