Continuing series enable faculty members to develop expertise in a particular area and make changes to their own practices. Groups typically meet monthly, are based on members’ interests, and can be formed upon request by a group of faculty members with a common interest. The Center for Teaching and Learning offers a variety of series:
Faculty Writers' Circles
This cross-disciplinary peer review group meets monthly to review participants’ manuscripts for overall structure and organization prior to submission. The process results in a higher rate of acceptance to peer-reviewed journals and often sparks interdisciplinary research collaborations among the participants.
Mini-Retreats for Scholarly Writing
Join your colleagues for a quiet day of scholarly writing. We provide a quiet space, coffee and light refreshments throughout the day. lunch, and moral support. You provide the content!
Over the course of an academic year, faculty members meet monthly to discuss a book on a particular aspect of teaching and learning. Participants exchange ideas on how to implement what they’ve learned in the conversations into their own classes.
Brown bags are groups that meet over lunch to discuss an aspect of teaching and learning that is of mutual interest. To form a group, please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
