Mark your calendars! ATD’s Teaching & Learning Summit will strengthen the role of Centers for Teaching and Learning and empower faculty as leaders in addressing issues of student access, achievement, persistence, completion, and equity in teaching and learning. Teams composed of faculty members, academic affairs administrators, faculty developers and Center for Teaching & Learning directors will engage with experts in teaching and learning, coaches, and practitioners from ATD colleges as they devise action plans to bolster their institution’s teaching and learning capacity and expand the use of evidence-based classroom techniques. The Summit program will feature multiple focused tracks, including one on implementation of Open Educational Resources.  Colleges that choose this track will learn about the role of OER in fostering open pedagogy and how best to integrate the use of OER in broader institutional student success strategies. Check our website soon for details.
