Winter Teaching Symposium 2019
The Winter Teaching Symposium will be held on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, at the Don Tyson Center for Agricultural Sciences. The Don Tyson Center is located on Garland, north of campus. (The street address is 1371 W. Altheimer Drive, Fayetteville).
Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. The program will begin at 8:30 a.m.
The guest speaker will be John Tagg, an independent writer and consultant on learning in higher education. His book The Instruction Myth: Why Higher Education Is Hard to Change, and How to Change It will be published in April by Rutgers University Press. His first book The Learning Paradigm College (Jossey-Bass, 2003), describes a research-based approach to redesigning higher education in the service of student learning and provides detailed examples of colleges and universities that exemplify the Learning Paradigm.
According to Russell Edgerton, president emeritus of the American Association for Higher Education, "This remarkable book takes the national conversation about taking learning seriously to a new level."
Tagg has conducted workshops and made presentations at more than 100 colleges and universities and has published in many higher education periodicals including Change, About Campus, Planning for Higher Education, and The International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. He is professor emeritus of English at Palomar College where he taught from 1982 until 2009.
