Celebration of Teaching

The Celebration of Teaching is a one-day event that aims to recognize and share the great teaching strategies, techniques, and practices at USF. In addition to recognizing recipients of the Provost's Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Awards, faculty will share best practices related to face-to-face and online teaching in poster sessions. All instructional personnel are encouraged to attend.

2017 Event

The 2017 Celebration of Teaching will be held on Tuesday, March 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Marshall Student Center. Follow this link to register for the event: Please email with any questions.

To make this as easy as possible on everyone, we're imagining smaller-than-normal posters, minimal text, and centered on just one teaching strategy, technique, pedagogy, or even trick. Even better, we're volunteering to make the first draft of the poster for you! Just send the WHAT, HOW, and WHY like you see in the examples below, and we'll make a draft you can approve or alter as you see fit. Or call/email with a general idea, and we'll do our best to fill in the gaps for you if you'd like. The objective is to prevent this from taking too much of your time.

Obviously, we will bear the cost and logistics of printing the poster and setting it up; we're really just asking you to show up and 'defend' the poster. We'll do it in two groups so you'll also have a chance to wander around and learn from the other posters.

Poster submission deadline has been extended to March 3rd.

To give you even more ideas on what posters could focus on, here are other examples:
