CIRT invites faculty to take advantage of an opportunity for you to present your developing or completed scholarship. The annual summer Teaching Showcase (TS) is currently accepting submissions.
Each Teaching Showcase focuses on a different topic relevant to effective online instruction; the theme for the 2018 TS is “BEST IN CLASS”. This year’s theme aims to capture the best practices of both traditional and non-traditional faculty. As educators, it is important to discover, reflect, and share teaching strategies with our colleagues and the collective community of teacher-scholars. As such, SoTL includes a broad range of pedagogical topics including:
Active Learning Strategies
Teaching Critical Thinking
As such, presentations will all focus on issues relevant to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, while focusing on “Best in Class” practices. For example, topics might include
LMS Best Practices
Classroom Management Strategies
Value of Instructor Interaction
Use of Technology to Support Instruction
Online Teaching Strategies
Faculty Support Best Practices

All faculty (fulltime, part-time, campus-based or online) at Grand Canyon University are eligible to present at TS. TS is an opportunity for GCU faculty to share best practices in online instruction with other GCU faculty. Presenting at the TS is limited to members of the GCU community.
