Each year, we host a full day Teaching Excellence Symposium to bring faculty and our VCU partners together to share ideas, strategies, and scholarship on teaching and learning. This annual event honors pedagogical innovatives, contributing to our broader faculty learning community, and getting us all energized for next steps to support student learning and belonging.
The 2020 planned symposium was, of course, postponed due to campus shut down and COVID-19.
In April, we held our 2021 virtual symposia. The event was broken down into two days, with a focus on general teaching excellence for the first part and inclusive teaching practices for the second. Attendees were able to choose from brief sessions where they learned about a variety exciting things their fellow faculty members have been implementing in their teaching practices. Members of the VCU community can access recordings from our spring 2021 symposium below.
