11th Successful 2016 Power Up Your Pedagogy Conference

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 Conferenceoffers NOVA faculty and staff the best opportunity to reflect and share their experiences with the aim of developing more effective pedagogies.
