Learning Teaching Forum Program
The Learning Teaching Forum planning committee invites you to fill out this google form to submit a topic you would like to see featured at the virtual Forum which will take place on Friday, January 8, 2021.

The 2021 Learning Teaching Forum will focus on the most important lessons that educators at the University of Dayton have learned about teaching and learning since the spring 2020 semester. Given the historic nature of the times we are living in, the upcoming Forum offers an important opportunity to pause and reflect with our colleagues on the learning and teaching conditions we all face.

Participants will be asked to consider questions such as: in what ways did you adapt or change your approach to teaching and learning as a result of the new realities of higher education and the challenges presented by societal changes more broadly? What changes did you make that you will take with you into future semesters? What ideas, perspectives, and/or approaches do you think will be essential for educators to consider as they plan their 2021 courses, programs, and activities for students?

Please use this form to suggest topics you would like to discuss during the Forum and submit your response by Monday, October 26). We hope you will join us for this important event and we look forward to seeing you there! Please email with any questions.

The University of Dayton Learning and Teaching Forum is an annual conference featuring faculty and staff workshops, presentations, and conversations about education theory and practice at UD.  One of the foundational commitments of the University’s vision of the University for the Common Good is to “develop the agility needed to adopt new models of teaching and learning that engage students and prepare them for servant-leadership roles and lifelong career success.” The purpose of the Learning and Teaching Forum is to bring UD faculty and staff together for a day of focused, intentional dialogue, sharing, and reflection about learning as a central part of the University’s mission and vision.

2020 Learning and Teaching Forum: Educating the Whole Person

ABOUT THE FORUM: The 2020 University of Dayton Learning and Teaching Forum will explore “educating the whole person” from various perspectives, including academic affairs, student affairs, and co-curricular/experiential dimensions of the UD education. As a Catholic, Marianist institution dedicated to the development of the whole person — mind, hands, and heart — the 2020 Forum will look at how different parts of the University collaborate, cross boundaries, and contribute to students’ holistic success and development. 

The Forum will be an opportunity for faculty and staff to investigate and dialogue about what it really means to educate the whole person, both inside and beyond the classroom. We invite faculty and staff to submit proposals for active sessions on scholarship and/or research on learning and teaching, as well as informal presentations and demonstrations.
