LSUA Summer Teaching Institute

The Summer Teaching Institute will be held Thursday and Friday, Aug. 16 and 17, and is organized by the Eloise Ferris Mulder Center for Teaching Excellence on LSU Alexandria's campus.

The two-day event will include presentations centered on new and improved ways of connecting with students and engaging students in the learning process.

The Summer Teaching Institute is held every year prior to the beginning of the fall semester. It provides an opportunity for faculty to become better informed of recent trends in best practices of teaching effectiveness. Eleven different workshop sessions will be held over the two days in the Barbara Brumfield Caffey Annex.

McGuire has been with LSU since 1999, having served as the director of LSU's nationally recognized campus-wide learning center prior to her promotion to assistant vice chancellor. She also spent 11 years at Cornell University, where she received the highly coveted Clark Distinguished Teaching Award.

 

Classes begin at LSU Alexandria on Monday, Aug. 20.
