Effective Teaching in Higher Education: Communication, Delivery, and Assessment
Aynur Yürekli (İzmir University of Economics)
The UMBC TESOL Program in collaboration with the Department of Modern Languages, Linguistics & Intercultural Communication and the English Language Institute present a talk by visiting Fulbright scholar Aynur Yürekli of İzmir University of Economics in Turkey. She will speak on how pedagogical competencies of instructors play a crucial role in improving the quality of the teaching and learning in higher education institutions. However, in many countries worldwide, pedagogical training is not a requirement for being an instructor at a university. This talk explores how pedagogical competencies of instructors affect student perceptions by focusing on three key dimensions of classroom pedagogy: delivery, communication, and measurement and assessment. Specific emphasis will be placed on “classroom communication” and how it relates to concepts beyond the classroom setting.
RSVP required by March 2nd.
