Proposal Title

Exploring the Evidence

Proposal Abstract

In this presentation, members of a faculty learning community will share their experiences in applying principles of evidence-based teaching and learning in their courses and university programs. The framework of "Evidence Based Decision Making" (EBDM) will provide the focus of the presentation and discussion. This framework will include a summary of research on the educational value and results of formative evaluation and performance assessments. Panelists will briefly describe the framework and their individual challenges and successes in using EBDM in a nursing course, a foreign language course, library programs, and a faculty development program. After these brief presentations, attendees will have a few minutes to discuss among themselves how to apply the EBDM framework in their own courses and programs, and then the panelists will lead a follow-up question and answer dialogue to share our respective insights about the process and value of EBDM applications.

Full Proposal

In this panel presentation, members of a faculty learning community at a regional university will share their experiences in applying the principles of evidence-based teaching and learning to their practice. Ludy Goodson will review research on formative evaluation and test assessments related to evidence-based teaching and learning practices, including examples from prior and current research to inform teaching practices in different courses. Dr. Maggie Davis and Dr. Clara Krug will discuss how they have applied the principles of evidence-based practice in their academic courses. Mr. Li Lili will discuss how he applies the principles of evidence-based practice to the enhancement and integration of Distance Learning Service at the University Library: http://library.georgiasouthern.edu/libref/distance_learning.html.

The objectives for this session are to

1. Describe key principles, strategies, and purposes of evidence-based teaching and learning.

2. Recognize applications of these principles in examples of research studies focused on improving course design and teaching practices.

3. Extend the principles and research to strategies, methods, and purposes that may be applied in any academic course and personal teaching practices.

After a 20 minute presentation during which the members of the panel share their information about evidence-based teaching and learning, the audience will be asked to work together in groups to explore how they might apply evidence-based teaching and learning to their academic courses. After 10 minutes, the groups will be asked to share their ideas about application of evidence-based teaching and learning principles to their courses. The final 5 minutes of the program will be an interactive Q&A session with the audience.

This session will provide members of the audience with an opportunity to experience a highly interactive format consisting of the panel sharing information and their experiences using evidence-based teaching and learning principles and practice, group work, and a Q&A session.
