The Fennema Lectureship & Workshop
Featuring Dr. Clyde “Kipp” Herreid
Join us on Sunday, July 14 from 10:30 - 11:15am to hear from Dr. Kipp Herreid, renowned teacher, author, and case studies expert, as he shares with you insights into the power of different delivery formats for case studies, problem based learning, and other active learning teaching methodologies.
Participate in a hands-on case study exercise and debrief (from the learner’s perspective) during the Fennema workshop, held from 1:30 - 3:00pm in the SPA Lounge. Space is limited to 70 participants on a first come basis. Whether you or your staff learn in a classroom or a lab, the use of case studies can be an excellent learning and training tool.
Dr. Herreid, a veteran educator who has held teaching positions at the University of Alaska, University of Montana, University of Nairobi (Kenya), Duke University, and the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he is a SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences, has spent 25 years experimenting with innovative teaching approaches, especially in the use of case studies. Dr. Herreid is director of the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science. Author of numerous books, his most recent is Science Stories: Using Case Studies to Teach Critical Thinking.
The Lecturer honor will be the cornerstone of the newly created Teaching & Learning Program launching at our 2013 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo. IFT created this lectureship and award as a means to:
- Recognize accomplished professionals who would not typically participate in IFT’s Scientific Program
- Address topics of interest to IFT’s multidisciplinary and global audience, although of primary interest to food science educators
- Highlight their experiences and/or research with applicability to the food industry
- Share game changing/action oriented information relevant to food professionals
