David Green, associate director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, was the opening keynote speaker at the 15th Annual Conference of SEDA, the United Kingdom's professional organization for educational/faculty developers. His address, titled "Constructive re-alignment? U.K. educational development from the outside," focused on areas where U.K. and U.S. faculty development can learn from each other and on ways in which U.K. developers might reconfigure their work in a difficult political climate.
While in the UK, Green also ran sessions for faculty at Roehampton University (London) and Birmingham City University on classroom incivility and millennial learners. Green also gave two presentations at the annual conference of the U.S. faculty developers' network (POD) in St. Louis. The first reported on an international study (with Celia Popovic in the U.K.) of faculty preconceptions of student performance, while the second, with Deandra Little of the University of Virginia, explored a new theoretical, sociocultural model of how faculty developers position themselves in their institutions.
