Early Career Faculty Circle
CTLT’s Early-Career Faculty Circles offer faculty in their first three years of service at Illinois State a combination of professional development and peer support. Join us for a series of lively conversations about surviving and thriving in the academy.
Topics for the Spring 2018 semester are drawn from the book Facilitating Seven Ways of Learning by James R. Davis and Bridget D. Arend. The text introduces a conceptual approach for selecting appropriate teaching strategies for different types of content and for achieving specific learning objectives. Davis and Arend demonstrate how a focused and purposeful selection of activities improves student performance and makes for a more effective and satisfying teaching experience. Participants will receive a copy of the book and an executive summary of each chapter.
* This group meets on select Wednesdays or Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m.
* Sessions are held in the Resource Commons at CTLT’s facility at 301 S. Main Street.
* No registration is necessary.
