11th Successful 2016 Power Up Your Pedagogy Conference

PUP LOGO - Copy

January 7 the NOVA faculty and staff assembled for the 11th Power Up Your Pedagogy Conference (PUP) with its commemorated theme Then and Now: Celebrating 50 years of Learning. Offering a range of speakers, including his first welcoming presidential address by Dr. Scott Ralls, and 48 breakout sessions. The conference provided numerous opportunities for NOVA faculty to learn from their colleagues about best practices in teaching and learning, special projects and initiatives.  Callan Bentley, 2015 winner of the SCHEV Outstanding Faculty Award, created excitement with his TED-like keynote address.

This year’s conference was smaller in time frame though still offered a range of  pedagogical issues directed at Environment for Learning, Teaching Strategies for Learning, increasing Student Success, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and Partners in Learning.  Further, ten posters, many produced by adjunct faculty and instructional staff, detailed individual projects with implications for instruction. With the increasing importance of community colleges in the nation’s effort to provide accessible higher education to an ever-widening range of students, the annual PUP Conference offers NOVA faculty and staff the best opportunity to reflect and share their experiences with the aim of developing more effective pedagogies.

NOVA Video Services has provided links to the PUP Conference videos. To access the videos, please go online and select “Video on Demand” (on the left menu bar), next select “Faculty/Staff Resources” (on the top menu bar), and lastly log in using your myNOVA username and password.

Top Reads of 2015-The Chronicle of Higher Education

Top Reads of 2015 – The Chronicle of Higher Education

// //

Top Reads of 2015

Over the past year, The Chronicle Review published 196 essays, book reviews, and news articles written by professors, administrators, grad students, journalists, and one personal assistant. Taken as a whole, the themes that inspired, unsettled, and provoked readers included the corporatization of the university; sexual politics and the impact of Title IX; tensions between academic freedom and civility; race on campus (including injustices suffered by black professors), and the push and pull of intellectual progress across the disciplines.

Controversy swirled around a work of urban ethnography. Academic outcasts sought to contribute new insights (and, perhaps, revive their reputations). Professors questioned the teaching-research binary and diagnosed a “plague of hypersensitivity.”

Here are 10 articles that strongly connected with readers in 2015. We think they’re worth another look.

—The Editors

Top Reads of 2015 – The Chronicle of Higher Education

// //

Bean counters, bureaucrats, and barbarians are to blame.

How campus rules make students more vulnerable.

What’s the good of having a freedom you’re afraid to use?

We are entering an age of willful ignorance.

Incivility is the only civilized response to barbarity.

The hidden story behind the code that runs our lives.

The professoriate needs to refocus on students or face extinction.

Regardless of what you may think of Rachel Dolezal, racial transition is a valid experience. I have gone through it.

Biologically, intellectually, socially, women are the superior gender, and society will increasingly reflect that.

Intellectual virtues prepare students for their professional and personal lives.
