Dear CC Faculty:
The Crown Center for Faculty Development and the Dean’s Office have organized the “Making Our Teaching Visible” Faculty Workshop: (Wednesday Aug. 13 - Thursday Aug. 14). This two-day workshop focuses on making what we do more visible to each other and to our students. The Block Plan creates both opportunities and challenges to effective teaching. Our students, with their diversity of experience and background challenge us as well. We’ll have panel discussions, hands-on workshops and presentations about teaching “visibly,” classroom discussion techniques, syllabus redesign, teaching FYE students and seniors, effective fieldwork, etc. This faculty workshop will dovetail with a set of workshops designed for NEW faculty, so you’ll a chance to meet a number of our new CC faculty. We will pay you for your time: $300 for the full two days.
We will send you a more detailed agenda and program as a reminder later in the summer, but if you think you are interested please RSVP to Jenn Sides, the Crown Staff Assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-389-6168.
If you have any questions or particular concerns, contact me, Anne Hyde, Crown Faculty Center Director ( email@example.com or 719-389-6986).
