January events

Monday, November 30, 2009 (Around 5 years ago)

The Kendall Center will be sponsoring a faculty workshop on students and alcohol led by Peg O’Connor and Janet DeMars. Watch Faculty-L for details.

We also will fund up to three reading groups during the month of January. Jeff Dahlseid once organized a January group that read How People Learn, meeting four times over the course of the month. It was a memorable experience. Is there a book you’d like to discuss with colleagues? Would some of you like to get together over coffee to share some articles? Send Barbara Fister an e-mail ASAP with the title of books and numbers of participants so we can get them ordered.

Teachers Talking Shop - In January, our Teachers Talking luncheon will get back to basics. Our topic will be “What Works, What Needs Work.” We won’t have a facilitator. Instead, please bring two ideas with you. What is something you’ve done in the classroom that works? What is something that’s not working well? We’ll share our experiences and troubleshoot for each other. Join us January 21st at 11:30 or 12:30 in the St. Peter Room and bring your ideas. Free lunch. Good conversation.
