October 12th: Troubleshooting Revisited
10 – 11 AM, on zoom

October 20th (on zoom) and 21st (in person): Realistic Excellence
10 AM – 11 AM
What does “excellence in teaching” mean, and what does it look like in these challenging circumstances? How do contingency, age, race, and / or gender impact perceptions of teaching excellence? This workshop will help faculty identify their teaching strengths, set and communicate realistic expectations for their teaching, and use available tools in ways that convey their definition of teaching success to a variety of audiences. While all faculty are welcomed, we especially encourage contingent / visiting, untenured, and historically underrepresented faculty to participate. These workshops were not recorded.
