Teach & Tell

Once a month, the Center for Teaching hosts a casual lunch gathering for faculty to share teaching ideas and techniques with their colleagues. Topics so far have included a method for close reading and building rapport in the classroom, active learning, mentoring students, film in the classroom, research in the classroom, and others.

Connected Colleagues

Formerly called the faculty mentorship program, the CfT sponsors a “connected colleagues” program that sponsors triads of faculty from different disciplines and ranks getting together over lunch or coffee to talk about teaching and the profession.

Faculty Learning Communities

The Center for Teaching sponsors faculty learning communities, which bring small groups of faculty together in a casual setting to discuss topics of common interest.

Co-Sponsoring Talks and Events

We are always happy to assist groups on campus hoping to organize a talk, workshop or event that promotes excellence in teaching. We have co-sponsored events with the Director of Advising, the Mellon Globalization Forum, the QEP initiative (speaking and listening), and more.
