Randy Bass, leader and professor at the intersection of new media technologies, will be this year’s keynote speaker at the third-annual Learning & Teaching at UC Conference.
This year’s Learning and Teaching at UC (LT@UC) conference will take place Thursday, Oct. 11, in the Digital Commons area of Langsam Library. The theme of the event, creative approaches to students' and instructors' partnerships in the co-creation of knowledge, will be enhanced by this year’s keynote speaker, Randy Bass from Georgetown University.
Bass has been working at the intersections of new media technologies and the scholarship of teaching and learning for 20 years. Most notably, he served as a director and principal investigator of the Visible Knowledge Project, a five year, $4 million project involving 70 faculty from more than 22 college and university campuses. With a unique combination of theoretical and practical explorations, that project aimed to improve the quality of teaching through a focus on student learning and faculty development in technology-enhanced environments. His published collection of essays and synthesis of findings, “The Difference that Inquiry Makes: A Collaborative Case Study on Technology and Learning, from the Visible Knowledge Project,” (co-edited with Bret Eynon), was published in the digital journal Academic Commons.
Save the Date for the LT@UC Conference on Oct. 11, 2018, to hear Bass speak in person. For more about conference information and guidelines, visit the LT@UC webpage.
Faculty, staff and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts for the LT@UC conference that celebrate, promote and stimulate scholarship focused on 21st-century education. Compelling proposals will focus on pedagogies, designs and philosophies that showcase active, creative approaches to partnerships between students and instructors in creating knowledge. Suggested areas include innovations, performances, exhibitions, and applications to address complex problems, whether in the classroom or beyond. This year’s theme is “Students as Producers/Creators.” Proposal abstracts are due Monday, Sept. 17, and can be submitted via CET&L’s online survey form.
