Innovation in Teaching: Duke Faculty Speak

Please join Learning Innovation for a lunch showcasing faculty members who are trying new pedagogies, teaching techniques, and educational technologies in their classrooms. There will be an hour of lightning round presentations, followed by a group discussion of innovative teaching at Duke. About our speakers:

  • Eileen Anderson (Romance Studies) designs innovative out-of-class activities such as 3D printing assignments for her hybrid Spanish course.
  • Amanda Starling Gould (Franklin Humanities Institute) is incorporating the concept of mindful learning into her courses in order to reach the whole student.
  • Karen Murphy (Psychology and Neuroscience) is researching how the use of Nudge, a reminder system to encourage the retention of course materials, impacts students' final scores.
  • Catherine Staton and Joãn Ricardo Vissoci (Global Health Institute) co-teach a highly collaborative, technology rich online course for Global Health in which students work in groups to conduct a research project.
  • Kearsley Stewart (Global Health Institute) will discuss the impact of student participation in a theatre production on student learning and metacognition in her global health course, "Ethics of Infectious Disease Control."
