Stay tuned for upcoming information about our 2019 Faculty Focus!

Faculty Focus encourages LSU Faculty to share best practices in active learning through workshops.

As part of the CAS’s faculty initiative, an annual, one-day workshop is held for LSU faculty and teaching assistants (TAs) to learn innovative strategies proven to increase engagement and learning in large class environments. Faculty members and education specialists share instructional techniques used to motivate and engage students.

Held each summer, Faculty Focus is designed to facilitate collaboration and encourage discussion regarding implementing high impact educational practices into course instruction. This provides a unique, professional development opportunity for those who teach large classes; those interested in implementing active learning into their courses; and those looking for instructional resources and networking opportunities with colleagues.

Here is what past Faculty Focus workshop guests had to say:

“Very engaging presentations by LSU faculty members. I found that each and all their activities could be applied to my classes.” - Carmela Mattza, Assistant Professor in the Department of Foreign Languages & Literature.

“Outstanding. Insightful. Inspirational.” - Don Ator, Instructor and Undergraduate Advisor in the Department of Agriculture and Agribusiness.
