Emily Miller, associate vice president for policy at the Association of American Universities, will be on campus Jan. 10–11 to meet with stakeholders about the AAU’s commitment to teaching excellence.
Miller will hold a public presentation Jan. 10 from 8:30 to 9:50 a.m. in the Erb Memorial Union’s Redwood Auditorium. The talk is titled “Aligning Practice to Policy: Teaching Excellence at AAU Institutions.”
Topics will include the AAU’s findings of key institutional elements that support teaching excellence, the responsibility of AAU institutions to use evidence-based teaching methods to promote student success, and how misalignment of practice and policy can get in the way of that success.
The talk is open to the public and preregistration is not required.
Miller’s visit is hosted by the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs, the Science Literacy Program and the Teaching Academy Advisory Board.
