CFP: 2012 UW Teaching and Learning Symposium
The Center for Teaching and Learning, the Faculty Council on Teaching and Learning, the Teaching and Learning Center at UW Bothell, and the Teaching and Learning Center at UW Tacoma invite your participation in the Eighth Annual Teaching and Learning Symposium at the University of Washington, scheduled for Tuesday, April 17, 2012, 2:00-4:30 p.m., in the Walker Ames Room, Kane Hall.
Many UW faculty, graduate students and professional staff are actively engaged in examining how their work affects student learning. The Symposium provides a forum where all who share this interest in improving student learning can learn about the work their colleagues are doing. We invite you to present your work on teaching and learning at the Symposium. Presenters are asked to represent their work in a poster session and to be on hand during the session to discuss their work with others.
