The 2019 Teaching Showcase was held Wednesday, February 20 at 2 p.m. in the BPSC Multimedia Room.


What is the Teaching Showcase?


The Teaching Showcase provides faculty, staff, and teaching assistants the opportunity to share best practices, recognize colleagues’ innovative teaching methods, and hold cross-disciplinary conversations to create better learning opportunities for students. This event will be held annually.


Who can present?

Faculty, staff, and teaching assistants are welcome to submit presentation proposals.

A committee reviews proposals and selects 10 presenters. Presenters are announced in early February.

I have a cool teaching strategy. Can I be a presenter?


We open the call for proposals each spring and announce the call via SFA Today and email. We'd love to hear your cool teaching ideas!

What are some of the topics that have been presented in the past? How can I view past presentations and/or contact a past presenter?
