“It’s the Little Things”
Innovations can be flashy and obvious or they can be subtle and unobtrusive. I’ve incorporated changes of both sorts, and have often found that the subtle changes have a greater impact on student learning.
Join us for 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 20 minutes of discussion time.
We will be recording the presentation part of this session, and will post the video on our Web site.

NOMINATE SOMEONE TO DO AN INNOVATION 20/20 SESSION!
Anyone can be nominated – faculty, students, and staff – to conduct an Innovation 20/20 session. Each session consists of 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 20 minutes of discussion.
While it is difficult to pin down what is meant exactly by “innovative teaching,” here are are a few guidelines. Nominees should be more than just good teachers. They are people who take some risks and try new things. They are also people who are known to use one or more unique innovative strategies consistently as part of their teaching repertoire.
The focus is squarely on “innovation in teaching,” but if some attention is given to how technology makes the teaching innovation possible or feasible, all the better.
To submit a nomination, send the following information to Lloyd Rieber at email@example.com:
*Name and email of the nominee
*Nominee¹s department and/or program
*Short explanation of why you are nominating this person (e.g. in what way is the person innovative in his/her teaching)
Self-nominations are also accepted, but priority will be given to people nominated by others.
