1:00 - 2:00 p.m., Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316
Presented by Jari Aho
Jari is a lecturer at JAMK University in Jyvaskyla, Finland, and is a leader in Faculty Development both in his native country and internationally. He comes to IC as part of a faculty exchange agreement with JAMK University.
Those of us who teach at IC are experts in our disciplines, but have to learn how to translate our expertise into effective teaching. This is a challenge faced everywhere in higher education. Jari will explain the approach used in Finland to help disciplinary experts become expert teachers. Can we adapt aspects of the Finnish model to Ithaca College? After his presentation, Jari will lead a discussion with members of the Faculty Development Committee.
Registration is encouraged, but not necessary.
