Teaching Dialogues and Workshops

The Purpose

We offer a variety of professional development workshops for faculty where dialogue is encouraged. This provides a space for an open exchange of perspectives that helps faculty deepen their understanding of what works in the classroom. Additionally, it provides opportunities for collaboration and helps build community. Topics are based on research-based best practices in the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Below, you'll find some upcoming workshops we're planning and a comprehensive list of the types of opportunities we prep for our faculty.
