"A Sneak Peek into My Classroom" (Panel)
For this opening panel, we have challenged each of the faculty panelists to showcase the teaching of a course concept in ten minutes or less (a sneak peak for the open classroom concurrent sessions) as well as share in brief what the heart of teaching and learning means to them. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in dialogue with the panelists about what they observed and experienced.
