This is a reminder to join us for the 2012 Teaching and Learning Symposium, “Stretching Our Boundaries, Reaching All Students” on May 23-24, 2012 at Union South. To view the program and register, please got to <http://www.learning.wisc.edu/tlsymposium/>
This year (2011-12) has been named the Year of the Wisconsin Idea, celebrating the principle that the University should improve people’s lives beyond the classroom. Faculty, instructors and graduate students at UW-Madison are experimenting with a variety of approaches that bring UW expertise and Wisconsin community into the classroom and that subsequently connect students to a broader community. This year’s Teaching and Learning Symposium will focus on ways that the teaching and learning community at UW-Madison is extending its reach beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom to reach all learners.
Sessions will highlight current and future campus initiatives, build on research, help colleagues make improvements based on past experiences, emphasize ways to bring the broader Wisconsin community into the learning process, or extend our impact beyond the traditional boundaries of campus.
The symposium provides an opportunity for all of us to share ideas and best practices, celebrate accomplishments, and discuss teaching and learning practices and theories in a forum dedicated to enriching the UW-Madison learning experience.
