The Faculty Development Pre-Convocation Workshop, held on the Klamath Falls Campus from September 14 – 15, 2015, asked faculty if they wanted students to:
- Ask meaningful questions and use evidence to support conclusions?
- Produce and use quantitative information in many contexts?
- Understand and respond to the diverse perspectives of others?
The first annual conference was hosted by the Commission on College Teaching and the Assessment Commission and provided faculty with a great professional development opportunity that supported student learning through collaboration with fellow Oregon Tech faculty. Faculty broughtg an assignment to develop further, and partook in great food, excellent conversation, and inspiring ideas.
