Teaching Conversation Series

The Teaching Conversations (a/k/a Teaching Institute) program fosters teaching excellence and camaraderie among professors. All faculty and teaching staff are invited to join Teaching Conversations 2016-2017, a series of six conversations over the full academic year. See agenda below for more details. 

To stimulate discussion, we'll provide session outlines with readings and resources in advance of each meeting. Outlines and materials will be available in eLearning (D2L), where post-session discussions will also be available. One of the most beneficial aspects of these teaching conversations arises in the sharing of experiences and insights from our classroom practices.

If you participate, you can garner the Teaching Institute 2016-2017 Certificate. In order to earn this certificate,

  1. Attend 5 of the 6 sessions on your campus (see below)
  2. Contribute substantively regarding each topic in our online discussions in eLearning (D2L)
  3. Write a two-page assessment of how these sessions influenced your practices.

Please REGISTER for each individual session. The fall sessions are available for registration, and the spring sessions will soon be ready.
