Teaching and Learning in Review: Insights from the EDUCAUSE 2010 Annual Conference
Diaz, Veronica
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v33 n4 2010
The teaching and learning track of the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference receives more session proposals than any other, most years numbering in the hundreds. In an effort to "gather" and synthesize the highlights from the nearly 50 teaching and learning sessions and presenters at the 2010 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference in Anaheim, California, the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) embarked on a community-based process to collect emergent practices and innovations in teaching and learning. First "reporters" from various teaching and learning-related EDUCAUSE community groups were recruited and asked to sign up using a Google doc. Next reporters were asked to attend a short online orientation to explain their role and the process, which was simple and something they could do while attending teaching and learning-related sessions. Nineteen reporters presented their thoughts, insights, takeaways, implementation ideas, and skepticism about what they heard from the teaching and learning community. In this article, the author summarizes the process and findings and suggests it as a model, scalable to any level, to promote engagement and critical thought while participating in professional development activities.
