Best Practices in Higher Education

On October 25, 2012, I presented a talk entitled “Best practices: How the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning solves the problems offered by today’s students” as part of Colloque “Le métier d’enseignant aujourd’hui et demain” [Colloquium on the Teaching Profession Today and Tomorrow]. The Colloquium was organized by the Institut Français de l’Éducation, part of the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France, in collaboration with CDIUFM.

This was a summary of some of the content in my book that had been published a few days before, Learning Matters: The Transformation of US Higher Education, co-authored with Peter Hoff. The goal was to present information about what the US does so that French teachers might consider doing some of the same things with their own students.

My thanks to Luc Trouche, Sophie Fermigier, and Anne-Claire Husser, for inviting me to to participate in the colloquium for facilitating my talk. This was my third and last talk in France while in residence at the ENS de Lyon this fall. My other activities are summarized here.
