Videos of SPOTLIGHT presentations

 SPOTLIGHT K-State 2015 was a celebration of teaching on our campus.  Some of the faculty comments were:

  • "Congratulations and thank you for a wonderful SPOTLIGHT event yesterday evening. It was engaging, convivial, elegant, collegial, and even magical at times."
  • "Bravo on last night's program! It was so inspiring and educational."
  • "Thank you for such a great and inspiring night. If last year was a home run, tonight was a grand slam. You all did such a good job and the speakers were simply magical."
  • "Fantastic event, beautifully orchestrated and enlightening! Thank you so much."
  • "I love SPOTLIGHT and thought it was especially amazing this year! I think SPOTLIGHT is one of the things that really make me proud to be a K-Stater."


2nd Annual Big XII Teaching and Learning Conference
Oklahoma State University
July 30 - 31, 2015

K-State Faculty please consider submitting a proposal:

A contingent from K-State went last year, and the presentations from our faculty were outstanding.  We are hoping for an even larger K-State presence at this 2nd conference.

Last year was a good experience.  Good speakers, getting to meeting people from other Big XII Schools, supporting our K-State colleagues….I recommend you strongly consider going.
