2022 Teaching Effectiveness Colloquium

When:  Oct 15, 2022 from 08:00 to 17:00 (ET)
The  2022 Teaching Effectiveness Colloquium is designed to address the needs of graduate students about to enter the academic job market as well as faculty looking to stay abreast of the “best practices” regarding OR/MS/analytics pedagogy. The colloquium features a wide variety of speakers from business and engineering schools who will address different aspects of incorporating and assessing effective teaching techniques in any undergraduate or graduate curriculum. Sessions are organized around topics such as teaching fundamental topics like optimization, successful methods for implementing active and experiential learning methods, leveraging the use of the flipped classroom, the use of cases in the classroom, DEC pedagogy, and using OR/MS tools to generate managerial insight.

To be eligible for consideration, an individual must be a:

  • member of INFORMS or have applied for membership at the time of the nomination;
  • faculty member or instructor in one of INFORMS’ constituent disciplines or be within one year of completing all degree requirements for a PhD in one of INFORMS’ constituent disciplines.

Faculty members who have attended a previous year’s TEC may be nominated again, but preference will be given to first-time nominees should there be a capacity constraint. A complete nomination will include:

  1. list of OR/MS courses taught or expected to be taught by the nominee;
  2. list of INFORMS TEC and workshops that the nominee has attended in the past;
