Don Smith Is Next Speaker for 'Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning' Nov. 2

Don Smith, associate professor of sociology and criminal justice and director of the online Criminal Justice Program, 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. Smith's presentation, "Managing the Classroom: Strategies and Techniques," will be from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2, in room 1202 of the E.V. Williams Engineering and Computational Sciences Building. All faculty members are invited to attend.

Smith will discuss the importance of developing engaging material to facilitate and improve student comprehension. This instructional approach falls squarely in line with his passion to teach those who, for reasons of geography, health or employment, have not had access to quality higher education.

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.

Archived videos of the series presentations can be viewed at http://clt.odu.edu/pctl or on ODU's YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=odu.
