Event Details

Join us on Friday, October 6 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  in the South section of the Great Lakes Room, 4th floor of Palmer Commons (100 Washtenaw Ave.) for Traveling Innovation Hour, a gathering co-hosted by the Office of Academic Innovation two times per month featuring a different theme and campus location each session.

Traveling Innovation Hours are informal discussions in which participants discuss a topic or open question related to teaching and learning in higher education that is particularly relevant to the host programs.

This Traveling Innovation Hour will focus on teaching and learning priorities of U-M’s School of Kinesiology and School of Public Health. Faculty, staff, and students of these programs are especially welcome to attend. Melissa Gross (Kinesiology) and David Mendez (SPH) will facilitate a conversation on effective pedagogies for undergraduate programs in the health sciences.

What special considerations are involved in teaching courses for undergraduates in pre-health professional degrees? What are the innovative tools and strategies currently being implemented in such undergraduate programs at U-M? Learners, instructors and course designers will share their experiences with active learning pedagogies such as blended courses and gameful learning, followed by a discussion of the benefits and challenges of incorporating new approaches into undergraduate curricula. We look forward to hearing your thoughts!

All are welcome to attend. Please register below to help us plan for refreshments. Registration is not required for attendance.
