Faculty Attend Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy
Because the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology is committed to providing high-quality educational opportunities to students through innovative, cutting-edge teaching, Drs. Laurie Gould, Bryan Miller, and Laura Agnich attended the 6th annual Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy (CHEP) held at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA, February 5-7, 2014. The conference, developed by the Center for Instructional Development and Educational Research (CIDER) at Virginia Tech includes faculty, administrators, and staff from universities nationwide and internationally. The conference exhibits evidence-based best practices for teaching, and includes interdisciplinary scholarship on teaching and learning. Conference presentations included demonstrations of “effective instructional practice,” and disseminated “the latest research aimed at improving the quality of higher education.” Drs. Gould, Miller, and Agnich attended pre-conference workshops on motivating students, leveraging reflective practice, and engaging learners in the classroom, which will serve to enhance the Department’s quality of teaching and learning.
