CALL FOR PROPOSALS

March Faculty Development Convocation
The Annual Fisher College Faculty Development Convocation will be on March 18, 2017.  Have you been inspired by a recent conference or reading on teaching and learning? Have you tried a new technique in your class that has yielded great results? Are you conducting research in the area of teaching and learning?  We want to hear about it!  Please consider proposing a workshop for our March faculty development convocation.

Faculty Colloquium Proposals
Each year the CTE hosts 1-2 faculty colloquia presentations where faculty from across disciplines converge to discuss a topic of interest from multiple perspectives. We are looking for instructors who would like to work collectively to create a panel for the 2016-17 school year.   Past topics have ranged from school shootings to drug treatment programs.  This program is always very well received by students who enjoy engaging in discussions on timely topics.
