Cal State San Bernardino will host its 2017 Spring Faculty Showcase celebrating the successes of faculty members from all disciplines in the use of innovative learning techniques, and highlighting inventive course development projects.
The Faculty Showcase will be held Friday, April 21, in room PL 5005 of the university’s John M. Pfau Library. All full-time and part-time faculty members who (re)designed and implemented a course revision since spring 2016 are eligible to register for participation in this event.
At the showcase, faculty members will offer their innovations in a five-minute, Ignite-style slide show presentation and competing for prizes. The format calls for the presenter to speak while slides advance automatically to support their talk. Each slide advances after being displayed for 15 seconds. The presentations will be divided into two segments, Round 1 from 11-11:45 a.m. and Round 2 from 12:15-1 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
