Celebration of Learning 2014 – Information for Students

The Center for Teaching’s end-of-year event, a Celebration of Learning, is scheduled for 3 to 6 p.m. on the last day of spring classes, April 21st. It will feature students and the products of their learning experiences in courses at Vanderbilt this year.  Imagine an exhibition of posters, presentations, and performances by students from all over campus, sharing what they have discovered, created, designed, authored, and solved.  The event will provide the Vanderbilt community with a picture of deep, engaged student learning across the colleges and schools.

The CFT has asked faculty to recommend students to participate in the event who have engaged in projects that fit the “Students as Producers” theme of the event.  More on this theme here.

Most students will share posters or other visual representations of their work, like the ones seen here.  A few time slots will be available for readings, performances, and presentations.  If you’re interested in participating, but aren’t sure how you might share your work, we’re glad to help you think through some options and to connect you to campus resources.  Just indicate on the form (below) that you would like some help.

The exhibition will run from 3:00 to 4:15 on April 21st on the second floor of Alumni Hall.  You’ll need to be there by 2:45 to set up.  If you need to leave at 4:15, that’s fine, although you’re welcome to attend the keynote presentation and reception that follow the exhibition.  More details on the overall event are available here.

We are asking participating students to provide some basic information on themselves and their projects using this short form by Monday, March 17th.

If you have any questions about this event or your role in it, please don’t hesitate to ask me or our student assistant on this project, Julie Lapidot (julie.m.lapidot@vanderbilt.edu).

Sincerely,

Derek Bruff
Director, Center for Teaching
