2011 Summer Teaching & Learning Workshop

Monday, April 4, 2011 (Around 3 years ago)

The John S. Kendall Center for Engaged Learning is pleased to introduce the 2011 Summer Teaching & Learning Workshop from May 31 to June 3. Workshops bring faculty members from across the campus together to generate ideas to enhance pedagogy, focus on particular issues vital to intellectual success, and develop better ways to engage students in collaborative learning endeavors. One of the successes of the summer teaching and learning workshops has been the opportunity for faculty to not only talk with each other about best practices, but also to work individually and collaboratively on course materials or portfolios. Each session during the 2011 workshop will continue this tradition and provide this balance of discussion and individual and collaborative work. Faculty will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of sessions, depending on interest or availability.

You can find a description of each session, including the day/s and time/s it is scheduled on the Kendall Center website. Eligible faculty are invited to apply for as many of the sessions in which they are interested and which do not overlap with each other. Faculty who participate in the sessions will receive a stipend and are invited to join their colleagues for lunch in order to continue conversations, make connections, and share ideas.

To register for the workshop, complete the form on the final page of this document. Please submit three copies of your registration form to the Kendall Center, SSC 119 by Monday, April 18.
