Workshops The workshop model asks faculty from around the campus share their expertise in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship. The workshops are active and participants gain pedagogical strategies to take back to their classrooms.
Working Groups The working group is a professional development model that allows for a team of interested faculty to engage in an issue over the course of the semester. Faculty meet regularly to discuss issues relevant to the college classroom and may read common materials. Participation is voluntary, although the group does ask that you are available to attend most meetings so the group can be more effective. Past working group topics include design thinking and supporting talk about difficult issues. We are always open to suggestions for future working group topics!
Book Club Book club allows faculty the time and space to discover or revisit texts relevant to our field. Books are suggested by faculty and participation in a book club is optional. Faculty mutually agree on a day and time to meet to discuss the book. Please contact us with book suggestions!
Speakers The CTLS works to enrich the faculty experience. We bring in outside speakers to engage faculty in discussion about best practices, current issues in college-level learning, as well as issues in scholarship. Past speakers include Dr. Edward Ayers, from the University of Richmond, speaking about the Digital Humanities; and Dr. Jordi Getman Eraso, from Bronx Community College. Find out about upcoming programming here! (Link to Upcoming Programming )
Consultations The Faculty Co-coordinators are available for instructional consultations by appointment. We are happy to meet with any faculty to discuss instructional issues such as assignment design, classroom climate, assessment, rubrics, and student engagement. Consultations are typically most effective face-to-face, but we can arrange a phone or Skype consult if necessary. For the fall semester please reach out to Vicki Fantozzi (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Spring please contact Caralyn Bialo (email@example.com) to schedule an appointment.
