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!
