The Academic Affairs Office would like to invite you to join in two causal lunch meetup groups that came out of the Summer Faculty Development week, remind you of asynchronous resources to support your faculty development needs during the semester, and let you know about our current plans for faculty development during the winter intercession.
Lunch Meetup Groups in the Newly Revamped Faculty Lounge:
Join with your colleagues for conversation and connection over lunch in the faculty lounge. Lunch will be provided from a variety of local restaurants throughout the semester. Please click here to RSVP for some or all of the lunch groups this semester. Note that because lunch is provided, this event is only open to vaccinated individuals.
Inclusive teaching. Join in conversation about general strategies from grading to open education resources to supporting individual students. Meets at noon on the following Mondays: 10/18, 11/8, 12/6.
Scholarship and writing. Come together to support and commiserate about any form of academic writing and think longingly of future writing retreats! Meets at noon on the following Mondays: 10/25, 11/22, 12/13.
Thanks to those colleagues who suggested faculty meetup groups for two topics!
Winter Intercession Development Opportunities:
Pencil in the dates! The first week of January, we will enjoy a scholarship-focused week with a day focused on faculty scholarship resources followed by a multi-day on campus writing retreat to help you kick off the year strong. The second week of January, get ready for Winter Faculty Development Week with a focus on inclusive and innovative teaching strategies. Stay tuned to your email, The Dome, and weekly COLI updates for more information!
If you have other suggestions for faculty development opportunities, please do not hesitate to reach out to Jenn Lodi-Smith, assistant vice president for academic affairs, at email@example.com.
