ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Trefny Innovative Instruction Center is pleased to sponsor our second annual Engineering Learning Conference.  At this event, Mines’ Faculty, Administration and Staff will share the ways in which we can all better engineer learning for our students at Mines and beyond.  Through panel presentations, round table discussions, interactive workshops, and innovative practice sessions, we will come together to think deeply about teaching and learning in STEM disciplines.  A lunch and evening reception with Keynote speakers and presentations will be provided with your registration.

Keynote from Dr. Marsha Lovett: Using Data to Enhance Teaching and Learning

Faculty specialize in a wide range of disciplines and incorporate diverse teaching practices in their work, so using "data" to enhance teaching and learning is not a a one-size-fits-all proposition. Nevertheless, there are some common approaches to collecting and using data that can make the process more effective and efficient. In this session, we will dig into questions such as: How can I be a more discerning consumer of learning data? What are some natural ways to start using data to enhance my students' learning? What if I'm already collecting data in my course and want to take it to the next level? How can educational technology support this work?
