Webinar: Rewarding Faculty Innovations in Teaching-Learning: Guidance on Two Opportunities

Please register no later than February 3, 2023, at 12 pm US Eastern Time by contacting Lori Medders at [email protected].

The Risk & Insurance Teaching Society (RITS) and ARIA cordially invite you to a webinar on Monday, February 6, 2023, from 2 - 3:15 pm US Eastern Time (UTC 0-5:00). As teachers, we attempt to meaningfully engage students for optimal learning and to develop critical thinking within the learning context of risk and insurance. How teaching excellence is measured at teaching-learning institutions may in part be tied to peer-reviewed publications and/or teaching awards. In this webinar, two distinct opportunities for recognition of teaching innovations will be discussed and each presentation will include Q&A. The webinar will be recorded and there is no charge to attend.

  • Guidance on the Strickler Innovation in Teaching Award
    Speaker: Mary Kelly, PhD, Lazaridis School of Business & Economics, Wilfrid Laurier University
  • Guidance on Writing a Business Case Study for Publication Consideration
    Speaker: Laurie Burney, PhD, Hankamer School of Business, Baylor University

Moderator: Lori Medders, PhD, Walker College of Business, Appalachian State University
