11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Bret Eynon, Dean for Teaching and Learning, LaGuardia Community College, CUNY
Laura Gambino, ePortfolio Initiatives, New Community College, CUNY
How do we help students connect their learning? How do we, as educators, develop pedagogies and practices that advance and deepen integrative learning? Campuses across the country -- from community colleges and research universities to liberal arts colleges -- are experimenting with ways to use electronic student portfolios to support integration. CUNY's LaGuardia Community College has drawn wide recognition as an international leader in this effort. Dr. Bret Eynon, LaGuardia's Dean for Teaching and Learning, will share insights, practices and research data from LaGuardia and other campuses in the national FIPSE-funded Connect to Learning project
Bret Eynon and Laura Gambino will meet with interested faculty for follow-up discussion in the Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett 316, from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Please visit Fall 2012 Events for details of future events being offered through the Center for Faculty Excellence. Topics include tenure and promotion, bringing social movements into the classroom, human subjects research, wine and cheese social, and much more. Scheduling is being done on a regular basis.
