Garrett McAuliffe Is Next Speaker for 'Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning' Oct. 19

Garrett McAuliffe, University Professor of counseling 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. McAuliffe's presentation, "Engaging Students' Interest and Effort: Lessons from John Dewey," will be from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, in room 1202 of the E.V. Williams Engineering and Computational Sciences Building. All faculty members are invited to attend.

In his presentation, McAuliffe will discuss how to engage students in the two key elements for powerful learning proposed by 20th-century educational reformer John Dewey: interest and effort. Participants will be given the opportunity to share strategies for using both elements to effectively engage their students.

McAuliffe is the author of six books including the upcoming "Handbook of Counselor Preparation." He is a national leader in teaching and learning for adults, especially in experiential approaches to instruction.

He specializes in cultural diversity, constructivism, counselor education and career decision-making.

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.
