January 26, 2011

The Texas Lutheran University (TLU) Honors Program and the TLU chapter of Alpha Chi Honor Society will host their annual academic forum on February 1, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. in the Dunne Conference Center in Tschoepe Hall. The topic of the forum is “High Impact Education.”

“High Impact Education is a broadly cited but rarely defined phrase encompassing applied classroom experiences, service learning projects, hands-on research, and other educational experiences that surpass traditional classroom instruction,” said Curtis Lee, TLU student and Honors Program executive committee member.

The forum will include a panel discussion featuring members of the TLU faculty and administration who will provide clarity to the term “High Impact Education” and will share their personal and professional experiences both in studying and implementing high impact educational practices. In addition, a panel of five TLU students will share their own insights as participants in high impact learning. Dr. Deborah Hettinger, Bohls Professor of Biology and Director of the TLU Honors Program, will serve as moderator of the event and Dr. Norman Beck, Poehlmann Professor of Theology and Classical Languages and Alpha Chi faculty sponsor, serves as chairperson of the forum planning committee.

Faculty and administration panelists include:

  • Barbara Gettig, Special Assistant to the Provost
  • Dr. Rebecca Kosary, Assistant Professor of History
  • Dr. Carolyn Schneider, Associate Professor of Theology, Philosophy, Classical Languages
  • Rodrick Shao, Instructor
  • Dr. Edward Thompson III, Executive Vice President and Provost
