About Celebration: Celebration is a one-day professional development
opportunity that is held annually in early February at Shelby Campus.
Sponsored by the Delphi Center, the conference is designed to foster
teaching excellence at UofL by providing educators from across the
university with evidence-based teaching strategies for improving student
learning. Throughout the day choose from among ten, one-hour concurrent
sessions led by faculty and visit our hands-on Learning Science Café.
Highlights include featured sessions led by University of Louisville's
Dr. Keith Lyle and Elon University's Dr. Steve Friedland. New this year,
we have invited Ben Motz, Director of Pedagogy at Indiana University,
to offer a closing plenary session.
About Dr. Doyle: Dr. Terry Doyle is an author, educational consultant, and professor of reading at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. His latest book, Learner Centered Teaching: Putting the Research on Learning into Practice, presents the research-based case that Learner Centered Teaching (LCT) offers the best means to optimize student learning in college. The book provides the underlying rationale for this approach as well as examples and ideas for putting these concepts into practice.
Graduate Teaching Assistant Application
This year's conference explores the application of findings from learning science research to teaching. We will consider questions such as:
- How do findings from learning science research inform effective practices in college teaching?
- What are evidence-based teaching practices that have been demonstrated to enhance student learning?
- What have members of our university community who have conducted research about the science of learning discovered?
- How can these findings be translated to help us improve the teaching practices, strategies, and approaches we use every day?
