Mike Welch speaking at Excellence in Teaching Day

Excellence in Teaching Day

Excellence in Teaching Day, the successor to eTeaching Day, is an annual event sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence that brings together faculty members from across the University with nationally-recognized scholars for substantive dialogue about important issues in teaching and learning. Through interactive plenary sessions and hands-on workshops, faculty members have the opportunity to address specific challenges and possibilities for growth in their own teaching, as well as learn from other faculty members and experts about new strategies, techniques, and technologies.

Save the Date

The next Excellence in Teaching Day will occur on Monday, May 6, 2019. Please stay tuned for more information about the theme and schedule for the day.


Keynote Speaker

We are pleased to announce that Professor Claire Howell Major will serve as the keynote speaker for the next Excellence in Teaching Day. A dynamic speaker with a background in English literature, Dr. Major is currently Professor of Higher Education at the University of Alabama where she teaches courses on college teaching and technology in higher education. An author of many teaching guides for faculty, Major is a leading thinker on the role of assessment in the classroom.


Call for Proposals: ETD Poster Session

As part of Excellence in Teaching Day, we will again be organizing a poster session to feature the innovative teaching of Boston College faculty. We welcome posters that convey a goal or challenge in teaching, present learning activities or other innovations used to address it, and examples of student work or responses that show the outcomes. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity to showcase your teaching, please email Keisha Valdez.
