Faculty Idea Exchange
The annual Faculty Idea Exchange (FIX) is just around the corner, and all fulltime and adjunct faculty members are invited. FIX is unique as it is a conference for faculty by faculty that emphasizes best teaching practices. This year’s theme is “Critical Thinking.”
Please save the date, Friday, June 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and make plans to come join your colleagues across campus as we—for the third year in a row—exchange ideas of how we can most effectively teach and reach our students at Columbus State.
Conference planners are currently seeking presentation proposals from fulltime and adjunct faculty. This is a perfect opportunity to enhance your portfolio or resume via scholarship. The OAA Instructional Success Committee strongly encourages faculty to consider presenting. There are countless innovative and effective instructional strategies related to critical thinking in classrooms, both traditional and virtual, taking place throughout our campus community. Presenting will allow your best practice(s) to directly impact the academic success of yet another group of students in another department, in another discipline.
If you would like to present on your own best practice that encourages critical thinking in the classroom, please complete the web proposal form at this link.
Proposals are due Monday, May 4, and will be reviewed by May 18. All presentations are expected to be fifty minutes in length, including time for questions and answers. Registration information for the conference will be coming soon.
