Faculty Development Day
Faculty Development Day brings Gustavus faculty together to talk with each other about teaching practices, pedagogical innovation, and student learning. Each year, faculty present a different topic, such as using technology in the classroom, incorporating service learning into courses, facilitating discussion, and creating writing assignments. It is a time to reconvene as a learning community and explore effective practices in teaching.
14th Annual Faculty Development Day (and Veggie Swap)
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Faculty Development Day serves a number of purposes for Gustavus faculty. First, it offers an opportunity to convene as a learning community to explore effective practices in teaching, scholarship, and creativity. Focusing on growth and community-building, the concurrent sessions provide faculty with concrete ideas they can incorporate into their classes, research, and workflow without making substantial changes and revisions to syllabi and calendars. Second, Faculty Development Day provides a chance to connect with new colleagues across the college and with faculty one may not encounter on a daily basis during the semester. Third, the addition of a Veggie Swap to Faculty Development Day means you can share your garden bounty with others and/or reap the benefits of the garden bounty of others!
