Mary Ellen’s Book Corner: Similar to past CTL Book Discussions, Mary Ellen’s Book Corner will function as a place for faculty to discuss books. These discussions will be held online and an off campus meeting with a meal will be provided during the spring semester.
Teaching Innovation Grants: Faculty may apply for grants penny between $500 and $1000. Up to 10 grants may be awarded. Faculty will apply with an explanation of how their research, observation and/or practice over the summer will influence their teaching. Recipients may be asked to present during REAL week or the FTTC conference
TLC (Teaching Learning Colleagues): The TLC groups offer a variety of services including class observations without evaluation, teaching resources, and technology integrations. Beginning this year, the TLC members will start working with adjuncts in small groups to talk about teaching, the campus and campus resources, and to observe as well offering constructive feedback and personal connections to our adjunct faculty.
Curiosity Series: With the intention of discovering more about ourselves, each other and our teaching, the CTL is hosting a three-part Curiosity Series:
– A Curiosity Panel Discussion – November 5th from 4:30-5:30 held in the Art Gallery in Maryville’s Library
– A Presentation at the Planetarium – given by Dr. Ray Arvidson, Planetary Scientist and Mars Rover Expert, we will discover more about space, the Mars rover, Curiosity, and how curiosity plays a pivotal role in our futures.
– A 3-D printer workshop – TBA in the spring. Faculty will be encouraged to design and create something meaningful to their own curiosities using Maryville’s latest and greatest technology.
Perspectives: a continuing education model of professional development. Participants can divide their annual PD contact hours in different ways, including faculty-driven group work, workshops, guest lectures, and panel presentations. These events culminate during the spring Perspectives Week, which draws upon the work done throughout the year and looks forward to summer work and the upcoming year; a fifth day is reserved for Schools and Departments
Write Club: A faculty peer writing workshop for any type of writing project from an iBook to a syllabus. Currently, Write Club will meet in DUC 107 on November 9th and December 7th at 3:00.
