A Day of Dialogue

Supporting High-Quality Teaching: A Day of Dialogue

Friday, June 7, 2019

9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Reynolds Community College Workforce Development & Conference Center
Richmond, Virginia

This Day of Dialogue brought together faculty, staff and institutional leaders to discuss how to support faculty in enhancing their teaching practice. Participants in SCHEV's pilot Faculty Learning Communities initiative shared what they learned through their work together over the 2018-19 academic year. Their experiences served as a springboard for deeper discussion of faculty engagement and possible models for giving instructors the time and space to learn about and/or experiment with different pedagogical approaches. 

As with previous events of this kind, the program was not about learning from the experts primarily. Rather, the goals were to (1) develop and strengthen relationships among people with a shared interest in this topic, and (2) tap into everyone's knowledge and experience to generate ideas about how SCHEV and institutions might work together to support high-quality teaching throughout the Commonwealth. Such an effort underscores the critical importance of creative, skilled and dedicated faculty, without whom Virginia would be unable to achieve the ambitious goals laid out in The Virginia Plan for Higher Education.

This event was made possible in part by a grant from the Lumina Foundation.
