Join your campus colleagues for the Welcome Back Symposium 2022: Teaching Strategies for Increased Student Engagement. This symposium, hosted by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, is a one-day event focused on motivating and engaging students in courses to increase academic success. Throughout the day, participants will hear from Virginia Tech colleagues about their teaching strategies for fostering student engagement as well from Saundra McGuire, director emerita of the Louisiana State University’s Center for Academic Success, who will present the opening keynote, “Increasing Student Motivation: Strategies that Work.” All participants who attend the symposium will receive a complimentary copy of McGuire’s book, Teach Students How to Learn: Strategies You Can Incorporate Into Any Course to Improve Student Metacognition, Study Skills, and Motivation.
The goal of the symposium is for teaching faculty members at Virginia Tech to gain information, inspiration, and ideas for strategies that they can implement in their teaching to increase student engagement.
