Nursing's Kimberly Adams Tufts Next Speaker for 'Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning'

Kimberly Adams Tufts, associate professor of nursing, will be the next Old Dominion University faculty member to speak as part of the "Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning" series.

Hosted by Provost Carol Simpson and the Center for Learning Technologies, the series features many of ODU's award-winning faculty members. Adams Tuft's presentation, "Creating Engaged Communities," will be from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19, in the River Rooms of Webb Center. All faculty members are invited to attend.

Adams Tufts will discuss specific efforts to promote relevancy, to acknowledge and connect life experiences and knowledge to students' current learning situations, to facilitate a positive learning environment, to show respect and to create "engaged communities of learning."

She has won a number of teaching awards, including the ODU College of Health Sciences Excellence in Teaching Award for 2009. She has taught eight courses across the graduate program since coming to ODU, including internships in classroom teaching, research methods, general nursing theory, interdisciplinary theories related to care of vulnerable populations and clinical teaching methods.

"Conversations on Teaching and Learning" is designed to provide faculty members from across the campus with the opportunity to share, think and reflect on a wide range of teaching and learning issues, according to Simpson.
