WSSU Faculty Participate in Teaching Conference
Kimya Nance, Mickey McCullough and Teresa Tyson from WSSU’s Division of Nursing and Carol Wilson from Family Services, Inc. placed second with their work on a mini walk-a-thon with Family Services Head Start as part of a multi-specialty nursing service learning project.
This year’s event, held recently in Greensboro, focused on evidence-based learning and teaching. WSSU faculty participation was sponsored by WSSU’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
“These types of faculty collaborations are important,” said Dr. Alvaro Galvis, director of the Center. “We are striving to continue many of the discussions started at the Lilly Conference, including the use of technology such as Wikispaces to foster faculty exchanges.”
WSSU was also recognized for having the greatest number of participants at the conference and received a free membership to Teaching, Learning and Technology to further support the university’s commitment to distinctive and innovative educational practices.
“I was so pleased to be affiliated with such a stellar group of scholars,” Said Dr. Denise Pearson, assistant provost for faculty affairs at WSSU. “I was also impressed with the quality of the three-day conference and its support of the connection between our research and our mission of providing a quality education.”
