The Provost’s Showcase of Scholarly Teaching

On April 5, CAT and FSU Libraries will host FSU’s inaugural Provost’s Showcase of Scholarly Teaching. This is an opportunity for you to share your expertise and innovations with the larger campus community. Even if you’ve never thought about presenting at a pedagogical conference before, you likely have strategies and insights that could be of benefit to colleagues. We invite you to apply to host a roundtable discussion or present a poster.

This could be something more formal, such as a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project (i.e., a research question you had about your teaching, the methods you used to investigate it, and what you learned.) This could also be less formal, like sharing something you did in your teaching or beginning a discussion about something you want to learn about.

A few examples topics include:

  • Asking students to solve more problems during class
  • Using two-stage exams to turn assessments into learning experiences
  • How I used formative assessment to make student thinking visible
  • How I foster community in my 300-person class
  • Using specifications grading to give students control of their learning
  • How I help my students overcome math anxiety
  • Why I provide most of my feedback on rough drafts rather than final papers
  • How grade-norming sessions help my TAs grade consistently
  • How I use clicker questions to give students practice during class

Details

When: Friday, April 05, 2024, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm 

Where: Student Services Building SSB 201/203 

Application Deadline: February 23, 2024

Formats of Presentation

There will be two presentation formats: poster presentations and round-table discussions. You may submit an application for either or both formats (separately).

Poster Sessions

You can design a poster that summarizes the teaching innovation or scholarship that you would like to share. Your poster should include both text and figures (e.g., tables, graphs, diagrams, photographs). You will have time to present your poster and discuss your work with other participants, as well as visit other presenters to learn about their work.

Round Table Discussions

In this informal format you can share something you’ve been working on, get feedback and input from colleagues, and answer their questions about what you’ve been working on and why. You can also use this space to start a conversation about something that intrigues you, like AI, or team based learning. A roundtable is a particularly great format for starting a discussion about something you want to learn more about.

Eligibility

If you have taught (have been an IOR) at FSU or the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, you are eligible to apply to present. You may have taught collaboratively, and so you may co-present with a colleague, or include a colleague as a co-author on your poster. Co-presenters and co-authors can be grad students, Learning Assistants, etc. If you have questions about eligibility, please feel free to connect with us via pro-teaching@fsu.edu to check.
