To continue ITLE’s effort to promote the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) and galvanize CNU faculty to work in this area, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ITLE organized its First Annual Retreat.
At this inaugural Retreat, spread over four weekdays, ITLE showcased the HEGA winners who shared their ITLE-funded SOTL grant projects. They shared the challenges they encountered in trying out new pedagogy, their implementation and assessment approaches, and the outcomes.
At the First Annual Retreat, ITLE hosted two prominent teacher scholars from the fields of pharmacy and medical education. Dr. Kristin Janke, Professor and Senior Associate to the Dean at the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy shared her viewpoint as longtime editor of prominent peer-reviewed SOTL journals in pharmacy education such as Innovations in Pharmacy and Currents in Pharmacy Teaching and Learning. Dr. A Laurel Gorman, Immediate Past President of the American Society of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) Division of Pharmacology Education and Associate Professor in the College of Medicine at the University of Central Florida shared her insight into effective strategies for online and remote teaching.
