Carole Henry, executive director of housing and residence life, and Judy Luedtke, director of new student and parent programs, will give a talk at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16, on "Creating Learning Communities: Practical Guidance" for the Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning Series. It will be in room 1202 of the E.V. Williams Engineering and Computational Sciences Building.

Participants will have a chance to engage in a lively conversation about learning communities and living learning communities, learn best practices and hear examples of effective programs, and discover learning community opportunities at ODU.

She serves on the board of directors for the Council for the Advancement of Standards.

Luedtke joined ODU in 2006, after serving as the director of orientation at the University of South Florida.

Hosted by Provost Carol Simpson and the Center for Learning Technologies, the Provost's Conversations on Teaching and Learning series features many of ODU's award-winning faculty members and administrators.

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