Designed for Impact: Building Transferable Skills for Lifelong Learners
Faculty, staff and graduate students are invited to register for the fourth-annual Learning and Teaching at UC Conference (LT@UC), to be held Thursday, October 10, 2019 in the Langsam Library Digital Commons. This year’s theme, Designed for Impact, focuses on our efforts to cultivate students' transferable skills for careers and lifelong learning. Presentations will focus on pedagogies, philosophies and practices aimed at providing students with, in the words of Cathy Davidson’s The New Education, “an intellectual toolkit of ideas and tactics that are as interactive and dexterous as our post-Internet world demands” (14).
Key topics might include: metacognition, mindfulness, reflection, adaptability, wellness, mindset, critical thinking, flexibility, job skills, innovation, competencies, assessment, machine learning, curricular and co-curricular (re)design, interdisciplinary teaching, trans-disciplinarity, inclusion and equity, digital scholarship, digital learning technologies, digital citizenship, and community impact.
LT@UC is presented by the Academy of Fellows for Teaching & Learning (AFTL), the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (CET&L), IT@UC's Enterprise Academic Technologies (EAT), and UC Libraries (UCL).
