Keynote Description:
Dr. Paul Hagner will review how students, administrators, technological change and the marketplace are challenging faculty approaches to teaching and learning. This presentation addresses different faculty motivational characteristics and how these characteristics influence responses to these challenges. Further consideration will be given to how faculty, academic support personnel and administrators can utilize approaches such as interactive learning, e-portfolios and the re-design of learning spaces to enhance student learning.
