When: May 8, 2024

Where: ADP Center (University Hall Suite 1122).  All presentations will be in-person though we will have Zoom options for attendees.

Register here! Submit a proposal!

The Office for Faculty Excellence (OFE), the ADP Center for Learning Technologies, and the Challenge Based Impact Lab (CBiL)are pleased to announce the 2024 Annual Faculty Showcase highlighting the work of Montclair faculty. The hybrid conference will be held on Wednesday, May 8 (the day after classes end). 

Please join us for this day-long showcase of Montclair’s teaching, learning, and innovative excellence. 

Faculty at Montclair are experimenting, honing, and innovating for student success in our classes and beyond. Most of our efforts occur within the space of the courses we teach, but increasingly faculty are teaming up with staff and others to positively impact student success through extracurricular programming and initiatives. This year we are thus broadening the focus of the showcase, encouraging faculty to share their work in advancing student success, whether in the classroom or outside of it. Our goal is to showcase great practices and foster cross-disciplinary conversations.

Presenters include instructors sharing their projects, practices, and pedagogical experiments, and fostering cross-disciplinary conversations. In addition, participants in the CBiL, the HEAL program, and OFE’s Communities of Practice and Teaching Innovations Program (TIP) will share their work. Sessions will run from 9 am – 4 pm, and you are welcome to attend as many of the sessions as you’d like. 

Coffee and bagels at breakfast and pizza at lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.
