AAU Teaching Showcase 2018
Atlantic Universities Teaching Showcase 2018
Engaging Learners Through Experiential and High Impact Practices in Higher Education
Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018
Haley Institute, Agricultural Campus
Dalhousie University, Truro, NS
As a feature teaching and learning celebration during Dalhousie’s 200th Anniversary, the 2018 Atlantic Universities' Teaching Showcase will encourage dialogue about what it means to create real-world learning experiences through high impact educational practices.
Whether in the context of individual courses, programs or across an entire institution, these practices are called high impact because they facilitate learning both within and outside of the classroom, require interactions between students and instructors, encourage critical reflection on experience, invite collaboration with diverse peers or members of external communities, and provide students with frequent, meaningful and substantive feedback. Although they can be time-consuming, evidence shows that participation in these high impact practices can be “life-changing” for our students (Kuh, 2008).
