TEDxEMU - Peggy Liggit - Teaching/Mentoring with Heart: It's Ok to be Human

This talk will consider capturing learning in the moment - the magic that happens between a mentor or teacher & the student. What are the qualities of an effective teacher/mentor? What are the qualities of an inspired student? A meaningful partnership brings together the intellect, emotion, spirit, and will from both parties - along with the human factor (being who you are and allowing others to be who they are). This presentation shows various ways this human relationship has been captured across campus with EMU staff, faculty, and students across Student Affairs and Academic Affairs.Peggy Liggit is currently the Interim Director of the Bruce K. Nelson Faculty Development Center. She earned her Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology (Univ. of Nevada-Reno, 1994) and her undergraduate degree in Biology with certifications in secondary biology and chemistry education (Northern Arizona Univ., 1981). Peggy has been on EMU's campus for fourteen years, serving two years as Director of Academic Assessment and twelve years as professor in the Department of Biology teaching and conducting research in science education. She is interested in learner-centered teaching, organizational change theory, and personality and learning style inventories for relationship-building.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
