If you have considered converting a traditional course into a blended course, you have probably asked, “What should happen before, during, and after class?” It is an important question to consider because your answer will determine how you spend class time, how students are introduced to course content, and what opportunities they will have to work with new ideas and information.

New Pathways for Learning
Stony Brook's 5th annual Teaching and Learning Colloquium promises to be a day of innovative interaction on the future of education. In A New Paradigm for Undergraduate Education, Barr and Tagg (1995) described a paradigm shift in education from teacher-centered instruction to student-centered learning. This concept is still relevant almost 20 years later as technology has become integral to the teaching and learning process, forcing us to ask ourselves: Is the Learning Paradigm experiencing its own shift? How prepared are we to teach in this age of digital global learning?
Join us for a day of innovative exchange and conversation, from MOOCs to ePortfolios to innovative teaching and learning strategies with technology. You are invited to participate in the day's interactive sessions, where your input and ideas will be vital to how we map the future of teaching and learning.

The Institute is designed to answer questions asked by new faculty developers and to provide the resources to get them started in planning, developing, and managing programs that will be effective in strengthening teaching and learning on campus.
