Teaching and Learning Spotlights

Teaching and Learning Spotlights are faculty showcases focused on excellence and innovation in student-centered teaching. Spotlights sessions are held once or twice a month from noon – 1:00 pm in the CTL (ILC 315).

  • Get out of your office! Spend a collegial hour focused on strategies Boise State faculty are using to actively engage students
  • Each Spotlight involves a short, informal presentation from a Boise State faculty member and plenty of time for discussion
  • To register, complete the registration form on the CTL Event Calendar.

Know someone who should be nominated to present during a Teaching and Learning Spotlight?

Spotlights are hour-long sessions in which faculty engage colleagues for approximately 30-45 minutes, with the remaining time used for discussion. The presentations can take many forms, from formal presentations to modeling some activity one does in class with students. The focus can be on pedagogical strategies, assessment ideas, or evolving thinking about how to teach certain kinds of subject matter. One does not need to feel one is an “expert” to be a presenter. Teaching and Learning Spotlights are an opportunity to share ideas across disciplines and to highlight what we’re trying – and what is working and what is still challenging.

To nominate someone (self-nominations are welcome), fill out this form.
