In conjunction with its April 2013 Celebration of Teaching Day, the University of Nebraska at Omaha has invited Dr. Patty Phelps as featured speaker. Professor Phelps is from UCA’s College of Education and currently serves as UCA’s Instructional Development Center (IDC) Director. She was selected on the basis of her recent e-book, Journey of Joy, released in September, 2012, by Magna Publications. The one-day conference in Omaha is sponsored by the University’s Center for Faculty Development. Dr. Phelps will give two presentations related to maintaining joy in teaching.
