Celebrating Research at WSSU
University Day will fall on Thursday April 15, 2010. We have declared this a day for "Celebrating Research at WSSU" and are looking to faculty, students and staff from across the campus to make this a success.
We envision bringing research from the classroom and laboratories to the Breezeway of the Thompson Center. From 10:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. we would like to display an array of posters and other visual representations of the scholarly work produced by members of our community. We can also provide space for short paper presentations or panel discussions. The idea is to showcase the excellent work being done by faculty, students and staff on this campus.
We are planning a very festive occasion. Refreshments and boxed lunches will be provided so that the campus may come together and learn about each other's work. We would especially like to see faculty/staff and student collaborations.
Register for the event as a research presenter here, or use the link included to the right. The Provost Office will sponsor poster preparation of works submitted for the event. Registration of Research Presentation is required by March 26, 2010. To have your research poster printed, it must also be submitted by March 26, 2010.
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is ready to assist any faculty member with the preparation of materials for this event. CETL will 1) review and critique your proposed poster content, 2) suggest best platforms for content delivery, including charts, graphs, interactive slides, video, podcasts, and combinations of these and 3) guide you in the development of these tools. This is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate your competence with the integration of pedagogy, technology, and research!
If you have been involved in a CETL supported initiative (Video Lecture Capture, Course Redesign, Web 2.0. Tools, Action Research, Writing to Learn, Online Course Development, Syllabus Redesign) over the last year, you are encouraged to share research questions, processes and findings with your colleagues, what you have learned about you as a facilitator of knowledge, and about your learners. Our collective participation in this event will be a true example of a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) in action!
