This series of teaching workshops has been designed for adjunct faculty in their first three years at USF. Adjunct colleagues will collaborate, discuss, and learn about strategies that address common teaching challenges. Snacks and beverages are on us.
As a reminder, all activities and programs at the Center for Teaching Excellence are open to Adjunct Faculty.
Each January before classes begin, the CTE will offer a day-long faculty workshop focused on a timely teaching issue. Our 2012 Intensives focused on Reinventing Rigor.
Mini-Grants for Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs)
The CTE provides annual competitive grants to small groups of faculty who wish to focus attention on a particular teaching concern. At year’s end, each group contributes material or programming to CTE for the benefit of other faculty.
New Faculty Workshops
Monthly workshops for faculty in their first three years at USF focus on developing effective teaching practices, and creating solutions to common teaching challenges. Plus, the CTE provides lunch!
A confidential, peer-to-peer program, Peer Coaching provides a unique opportunity to enrich and enhance your teaching practice. Your peer coach visits and observes your class, paying special attention to three concerns that you identify, and then shares his or her observations as you strategize effective solutions together.
Summer Book Club
An annual event, the Faculty Book Club kicked off in 2011 with The Heart of Higher Education: A Call to Renewal. In 2012, our choice was How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching. This year, we're reading Teaching Naked by José Bowen. Whether you love the summer book, hate it, or something in between, we want you in the discussion.
What does current research tell us about how students learn? How do we know if what we do in the classroom works? At Teaching Cafés, colleagues converse and learn together over lunch.
