TeachTalkAD— Spring 2022

The TeachTalkAD series is a development workshop series conducted by the Hilary Ballon Center for Teaching and Learning at NYU Abu Dhabi every semester. The series provides faculty, instructors, and researchers the platform to engage in teaching-related discussions supported by expert colleagues from NYUAD and across higher education institutions globally. Through these sessions and workshops, faculty exchange ideas about teaching practices, evidence-based best practices, and ways of fostering student engagement and learning. The NYU New York CFA also supports a TeachTalk Series and details of these events, along with recordings of all previous events, can be found here:
