Professor Harry Hubball
Harry is a winner of the prestigious 3M National Teaching Fellowship in Canada. His research and practice focus on educational development and the scholarship of curriculum and pedagogical practice in higher education.
There is growing recognition of the complexity of academic work and the need for scholarly approaches to curricula and pedagogical practices in higher education. Many universities in North America, Australia, UK and Europe, for example, have recently developed learning-centred curricula that focus on explicit student learning outcomes and assessment practices. Linking student learning and achievement with properly aligned teaching development plans within institutions, however, is critical for successful implementation.
This seminar/workshop examines the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) in higher education by highlighting successful case study examples from Universities in the Provinces of Ontario and British Columbia, Canada. Data suggest that context-specific and integrated frameworks for implementing program-level learning outcomes and teaching development initiatives is critical to enhancing student learning in university settings. Guiding principles and educational development strategies will be provided, informed by critical lessons learned in various university contexts.
Harry coordinates the Multi-national Teaching Fellows (MNTF) and Institutional Teaching Award (ITA) Winners Research Group on behalf of the International Society for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL). This workshop will touch upon collaborative research opportunities with colleagues from around the world, and diverse methodological approaches and considerations for conducting the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Please come willing to share your thoughts, experiences and best practices!
