Sueanne McKinney Next Speaker for "Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning"

Sueanne McKinney, assistant professor of mathematics education in the Darden College of Education, 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. McKinney's presentation, "Designing Effective Learning Activities," will be from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 16, in room 1202 of the E.V. Williams Engineering and Computational Sciences Building. All faculty members are invited to attend.

In her presentation, McKinney will focus on ways to create meaningful and engaging learning activities for both traditional and nontraditional classroom environments. She plans to highlight a variety of teaching strategies that can be used to promote student learning.

McKinney was an elementary and middle school teacher for the Norfolk Public Schools before she joined the ODU faculty in 1998. She won the 2002 Teletechnet Faculty of the Year Award and the 2007 Darden College of Education Teaching Innovation and Excellence Award, and was named the 2009 Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics William C. Lowry University Educator of the Year.

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.
