Moore, former dean of the faculties, the symposium brings the Indiana higher education community together to examine the various instructional strategies that encourage student learning.
Keynote by Dr. Freeman Hrabowski of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Institutional Culture Change: Academic innovation and Inclusive Excellence
Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), leads a campus widely recognized for its culture of embracing academic innovation and inclusive excellence. This culture has produced a number of distinctive initiatives to support and enhance teaching and learning – from infusing entrepreneurship and civic engagement into the curriculum to establishing an academic innovation fund to support faculty as they redesign courses and develop new approaches to help students succeed. Dr. Hrabowski will discuss some of these innovative initiatives, focusing special attention on building a diverse culture of innovation and excellence in STEM fields, and the critically important process of institutional culture change.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
