Dr. Victor C. X. Wang Presents At The SoTL Commons Conference Last month, the Centers for Teaching & Technology hosted the 7th annual “SoTL Commons” conference in Savannah, Georgia, from March 26-28. This conference brings together people engaging in SoTL and anyone wanting to improve student learning outcomes in higher education today. The conference epitomizes that college teaching is intellectual work that is enhanced both by disciplinary scholarship and the scholarship on teaching the disciplines (SoTL). The SoTL Commons Conference is a catalyst for learning, conversations and collaborations about SoTL as a key, evidence-based way to improve student learning.

IGI Global author and Editor, Victor C. X. Wang, of Florida Atlantic University, was invited to present at the conference. His presentation was entitled "Comparing Confucian Teaching and Learning with Western Teaching and Learning," a discussion exploring innovative instructional strategies revolving around andragogy and pedagogy in relationship to Confucian Teaching and Learning. Dr. Wang's presentation was especially well-received, with tremendous participation from the audience.

This talk was a result of Dr. Wang's vast experience and research in andragogy and pedagogy. Wang's forthcoming Handbook of Research on Adult and Community Health Education: Tools, Trends, and Methodologies also divulges this research and experience; presenting educational and social science perspectives on the state of the healthcare industry and the information technologies surrounding it. This encyclopedia presents a compilation of some of the latest research on methods, programs, and procedures practiced by health literate societies. This groundbreaking two-volume set provides cutting-edge content for researchers, social scientists, academicians, and adult educators and learners interested in how available technologies affect our health today.

Victor Wang's encyclopedia is a part of the Advances in Human Services and Public Health (AHSPH) Book Series, which aims to publish high-quality reference publications focused on the latest methodologies, tools, issues, and strategies for managing the health and social welfare of the public. The AHSPH book series will be especially relevant for healthcare professionals, policy makers, government officials, and students seeking the latest research in this field.
