CANCELLATION

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the following seminar on “New Frontiers in Teaching Excellence” by Professor Michele Marincovich will be CANCELLED.
Thank you for your attention.


Speaker: Professor Michele Marincovich, Senior Advisor to the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education of Stanford University
Date: January 27, 2015 (Tuesday)
Venue: Senate Room, 10/F, Knowles Building
Time: 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Language: English

Abstract
The past decade or two has already seen a shift toward greater emphasis on teaching even at leading research-intensive universities. Yale finally has a teaching center open to faculty, for example, and Stanford recently announced plans for the creation of faculty teaching fellowships, essentially teaching sabbaticals. But where will new sources of motivation, energy, and funding come from in the pursuit of faculty teaching excellence? This seminar will focus on looking ahead to future sources of development, especially at the institutional, student learning, and technology level, and will encourage audience participation in the generation of suggestions and possible opportunities.

About the speaker
MICHELE MARINCOVICH, Ph.D., is Senior Advisor to the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and former Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University (1980-2013). Her major publications, “Effective Practices at Research Universities: The Productive Pairing of Research and Teaching,” (with Constance Cook in A Guide to Faculty Development, 2nd ed., edited by Kay Gillespie, Doug Robertson, and Associates, Jossey-Bass, 2010), “Teaching and Learning in a Research-Intensive University” (in The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education: An Evidence-Based Perspective, edited by R. P. Perry and J. C. Smart, Springer Publishing, 2007), The Professional Development of Graduate Teaching Assistants (Anker Publishing, 1998, with Jack Prostko and Frederic Stout), and Disciplinary Differences in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (with Nira Hativa, Volume 64 in the Jossey Bass New Directions in Teaching and Learning Series, 1995) reflect her pioneering work creating effective faculty and TA development programs for the research-intensive university. At Stanford since 1976, her impact has been recognized on campus with the distinguished Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for Outstanding Service to Undergraduate Education and off campus by election as executive director of the Professional and Organizational Development Network for Higher Education and by invitations to speak on campuses in the U.S. and abroad.
