More information on these circles will be added as it becomes available.
Teaching- What a Great Gig! This circle led by John Moore (Chemistry) and Patricia Foster (Psychology) focuses on those early in their teaching careers. We will be discussing teaching methods that work, viewing some short video segments on teaching, and sharing some good stories/suggestions/ and collegiality along the way. Don't be surprised if there are some laughs as well because this is also a great place to share those student stories that make us do what we do. And since this is a noontime meeting, bring your lunch.
Parenthood Juggle This circle is led by Heather Olson Beal (Secondary Education/Educational Leadership). The emphasis is on discussing/commiserating with other faculty who are also parents of young children. They plan Sundays in the park, Morning Coffee, a Rountable Discussion, and a Pool Party. Look for entries in the calendar that indicate PJ.
