2020 FACULTY SHOWCASE
The fall of 2020 has brought unprecedented challenges for higher education classrooms across the country, and the University of Miami is no exception. This year’s Faculty Showcase entirely online event will recognize faculty members’ efforts to adapt to the new teaching landscape, including hybrid, remote, and fully online teaching. The Faculty Showcase is hosted by Learning Innovation and Faculty Engagement and is part of UM’s Platform for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (PETAL).
This year's event will take place on Thursday, October 22 from 3pm to 6pm. We invite the University of Miami teaching community to submit proposals for 30-minute sessions (including Q&A) to be held over Zoom that showcase effective or otherwise meaningful teaching strategies and success stories, including plans currently underway or evolving.
While all proposals that highlight this semester’s teaching stories and strategies are invited, we encourage proposals that focus on one or more of the following themes:
- Creating innovative and engaging hybrid and online courses
- Addressing racial and social justice issues in the classroom
- Encouraging dialogue and discussion among students
Proposals are due on Friday, September 25. Notifications and next steps will be sent by Friday, October 2.
