Topical Sessions on Teaching
This component of the Faculty Development Program complements the "Spotlight on Scholarship" and “Teaching and Learning” Workshops series, providing faculty with opportunities to discuss in small- and large-group settings a broad range of professional, social, personal, and spiritual topics.
Expressed faculty interests and institutional needs determine the selection of topical sessions. The director and the Faculty Development Committee work toward creating a balanced set of offerings, offsetting sessions that explore more general trends and issues in higher education with those that develop specific, usable skills and techniques.
Some of the past sessions include:
George Yancy - "Thinking about Whiteness & the Classroom: Through the Lens of bells hooks", April 2, 2014, presented in collaboration with the Office of Faculty Development, the Killeen Chair and the Cassandra Voss Center
Balancing the Calls of Teacher and Scholar, January 23, 2014, presented in collaboration with the Program of Faith, Learning and Vocation
Learning in the Digital Age Forum, February 4, 2011
Writing Across the Curriculum
