Educator L.D. Fink to present faculty workshop June 26

Registration available through June 17

The Brigham Young University Center for Teaching and Learning is offering a free hands-on workshop based on internationally acclaimed author L.D. Fink’s model of designing courses for significant learning Friday, June 26, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center East Conference Room.

Interested faculty members should register by Wednesday, June 17, at ctl.byu.edu/making-a-difference-effective-course-design/. Lunch is included in the registration.

Participants will bring materials and work on their actual courses, getting a head start on upcoming classes. This one-day workshop is intended for full-time BYU faculty who are planning to teach a new course or redesigning an old one. Part-time faculty and student instructors will be considered based on space availability.

Effective course design can make a significant difference in student learning and in creating successful classes, according to Fink, author of “Creating Significant Learning Experiences.”

The workshop facilitator is Lynn Sorenson, a longtime collaborator with L.D. Fink. For more information, contact her at lynn_sorenson@byu.edu.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
