Fall Faculty Day 2011


Fall Faculty Day 2011

Fall Faculty Day, Monday, September 19, 2011, you are invited to participate in one moderated roundtable discussion on an issue related to excellence in teaching and student learning (See below). This year features a shorter, more interactive program.

Recent public discourse <bookmark below/ URL links to articles> continues to put higher education on the defensive, and questions the role of the university in improving the lives of our students. As the idea of a college education is increasingly called to account by the press and the public, we are asked to reflect upon our role in teaching and learning. What does excellence look like in our discipline? How do we represent that to our students? What does their success look like relative to our profession?

Roundtable discussions will follow brunch and begin at 1:15. These will last one hour. You are encouraged to sign up for a topic that interests you. Please bring your ideas, best practices, and questions to the table.

These discussions will help us lay the foundation for future workshops and other support activities offered by the Center for Teaching and Learning. Please also take our questionnaire <URL to Zoomerang> regarding your specific needs and interests as a teacher-scholar and CSULA faculty member.

We hope you will find these conversations thought-provoking, relevant, and professionally helpful. Please join us.
