Teaching Matters



Teaching Matters is an informal discussion group where faculty talk with one another about issues related to teaching and learning.  At times we might share readings, or focus on a particular theme, or bring in someone to talk about opportunities or resources to improve our teaching.  The group meets on the first Friday of each month from noon to 12:50 in CoRE.  Faculty are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch but a light lunch will be provided.

Topics may change–if you have a topic you would like to see us discuss, please let the Dean for Faculty Development know!
