Celebrating effective teaching at AU

Last Friday AU held its annual teaching conference for faculty, named after to gifted teacher who inspired to conference, as well as our Center for Teaching Excellence. I wish every parent and student could have been a ‘fly on the wall’ to hear nearly 250 faculty members, including our President and Provost, discuss their love of teaching and share their ideas on how to teach better.

I said in my opening remarks, at probably no other higher education institution in the world are 250 faculty members voluntarily gathered, in the second week in January, to discuss and celebrate effective teaching.
