    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Convocation 2012

2012 Convocation theme: "The Learning Paradigm." 

President Hoi starts the program by offering Otis updates and a few words about the day, prior to the introduction of our keynote speaker.

Provost - John Tagg
 

Keynote speaker John Tagg discusses his groundbreaking book, The Learning Paradigm College, that defines a paradigm shift happening in higher education today. This shift places more importance on learning outcomes and less on the quantity of instruction, and emphasizes results more than formal processes. As Tagg explains, the Instruction Paradigm that has dominated higher education for so long attends to courses, while the Learning Paradigm attends to students.

Debra Ballard

Next Otis’ own Chair of Liberal Studies, Debra Ballard, shares thoughts, discoveries, and reflections from her own teaching and program administrative experiences, her extensive reading in the areas of pedagogy and best teaching practices, and her formal training in assessment for higher education.
