Poster presentations at the annual Teaching Festival

Webster University’s Faculty Development Center (FDC), in partnership with the Online Learning Center and Emerson Library, is proud to present the 2013 Webster University Teaching Festival, an occasion to celebrate and share effective and innovative teaching of Webster University faculty.

The week-long event takes place Feb. 18 – 22 on the home campus in Webster Groves, Mo.

The Festival will showcase the teaching innovations of fellow colleagues as they offer insights into effective methods, techniques and tools used in and out of the classroom, and also offer a cross-disciplinary approach by providing a unique opportunity for faculty and staff to interact with the work of faculty from other departments and schools.

The Festival kicks off with the Poster Presentations and Opening Reception Monday, Feb. 18, 3 – 5 p.m. in the East Academic Building, rooms 253/262. Poster presentations are opportunities for faculty members to share work using compelling, large-format print displays. Posters will be on display the rest of the week in FDC.
