Symposium on Innovation in Teaching and Learning
8:30 AM - 3:00 PM

Sargent Hall - (Function Room, 1st floor)

Each year, the Office of the Provost, Information Technology Services, and the Center for Teaching & Scholarly Excellence at Suffolk University invite New England faculty, academic technologists, administrators, teaching and learning specialists, instructional designers, and distance educators to attend Suffolk University’s annual symposium. The symposium will include technology but will focus on approaching teaching and learning at Suffolk in a holistic manner. 

Keynote speaker James M. Lang
 is a Professor of English and the Director of the D'Amour Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College in Worcester, MA.  He is the author of five books, the most recent of which are Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning (Jossey-Bass, 2016), Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Harvard University Press, 2013), and On Course: A Week-by-Week Guide to Your First Semester of College Teaching (Harvard UP, 2008).

 
Keynote: Small Teaching: From Minor Changes to Major Learning
Research from the learning sciences and from a variety of educational settings suggests that a small number of key principles can improve learning in almost any type of college or university course, from traditional lectures to flipped classrooms.  This interactive keynote will introduce some of those principles, offer practical suggestions for how they might foster positive change in higher education teaching and learning, and guide faculty participants to consider how these principles might manifest themselves in their upcoming courses.

The Innovative Teaching Award
The Innovative Teaching Award was introduced in 2017 to recognize faculty who are engaged in innovative teaching and to promote the dissemination of innovative teaching methods to the Suffolk community. The award will be presented at the 2018 Symposium on Innovation in Teaching & Learning on May 15, 2018. Please stay tuned later this month for the call for nominations.

“Why Didn’t I Ever Learn About This? What Forgetting about Enslavement in the North Means Today”
9:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Sargent Hall - (Blue Sky Lounge, 5th floor)

Scholar Marc Ross will deliver two talks:

“Why Didn’t I Ever Learn About This? What Forgetting about Enslavement in the North Means Today

9:25 a.m.

Although slavery existed in all the Northern colonies and early American states and did not end in some parts until 1865, the collective memories of slavery in the region faded quickly. Slavery came to be seen as “only a Southern problem.” In recent years, as a result of the work of historians and a few local political activists and organizations, popular awareness of the North’s past is returning in ways that are relevant to how we understand contemporary race issues and conflicts in the United States.  Professor Robert Bellinger, History, will be the faculty discussant.

“Symbols and Statues — Public Spaces and Reconciliation” 

3:05 p.m.
