Are you interested in redesigning one or more of your fall 2014 or spring 2015 courses to integrate teaching, research/creativity, and service/engagement? Jill Davis, while serving this semester as a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Faculty Excellence, is creating a group that will work together to do just this!
The participants will meet twice monthly during the rest of spring semester exploring innovative integration models, scholarship, and engagement possibilities. Each individual will redesign a course syllabus and create a feasible action plan for its implementation. One-on-one coaching as well as peer work will ensure productive feedback and support.
Individuals who successfully redesign a syllabus by June 1 will be eligible to receive a Curriculum Innovation Award of $200. An information session will be held on Friday, Feb. 21 to invite interested faculty into this exciting curriculum exploration. Faculty can then make a decision to join the group after that session.
The session will be held in the Bradley Conference Room (Wilson Hall, Rm. 2-257). Light refreshments will be served. Registration for the Feb. 21 session is required by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19; however, space is very limited, so register early. Please register at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PHVLBBT.
Once the group forms, the meeting dates will be:
Wednesday, Mar. 5; Friday, Mar. 21; Friday, Apr. 4; Wednesday, Apr. 16; and Wednesday, Apr. 30; 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.;
