New(ish) Faculty Teaching Workshop
August 14 | 11-3 in Cowell 417
At the beginning of each semester we welcome a new class of faculty (and some returning faculty) with a half-day workshop, providing a pedagogical toolkit to assist in the shaping (or refreshing) of teaching theories and methods. In addition to meeting other new and experienced USF faculty, you'll explore a set of core topics in three interactive sessions. You will take away a powerful pedagogical toolkit with templates, examples and practices that have worked for others to assist you in maximizing your chances for a successful semester, beginning with the first class. Sign up for the workshop.
Drop-In Canvas Work Sessions
August 14 | 3-4 pm in Cowell 417 and August 16 | 5-6 pm in Fromm Broad Room
Join a group of faculty colleagues who will also be working on their Canvas sites before the start of the semester. The Canvas Drop-In Session is akin to homework hour; this is a space for faculty to troubleshoot Canvas with one another. No RSVP necessary - we hope you'll join us!
Summer Book Club Dinner
August 16 | 6-8 pm in Fromm Maraschi Room
This year we are reading The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux, by Cathy Davidson. In this wide-ranging and accessible book, Davidson examines the technological, economic, and cultural changes that present great challenges for higher education today, and that also provide us with new opportunities. Sign up for the book club.
