Description: This session is intended to serve two purposes. First, we want to provide an introduction to Teaching and Learning in general, and the instructional culture at VCU. There are many forces that are shaping the teaching mission of higher education including, but not limited to, the competency movement (i.e. teaching skill development in addition to subject matter), technology, as well as the ever expanding diversity of our students and the experiences with which they bring to the learning environment. Secondly, we want to learn about you and the unique contribution you?ll invariably bring to the VCU community. What are your interests? What do you need to be successful? What are your thoughts about teaching and learning in general? What do you think are some of the most useful resources, methods and/or approaches for helping students maximize their opportunities for success? Ultimately, what we learn from you in this session will help inform what we do in the subsequent sessions.
