We are lucky to work within a community of devoted teacher-scholars at Wake Forest. Given this talent, we are intentional in our efforts to bring educators together to learn as much from one one another as they learn from us. We also welcome partnerships with instructors who want to lead departmental or campus initiatives related to teaching. If you want to be more involved with the work of the CAT, we offer a variety of opportunities to serve:
- Most formally, you can represent your school or department on the CAT University Committee. Representatives are either appointed or elected by the unit they represent. If you would like to serve, we recommend letting unit administrators know you are interested.
- If you have a teaching idea or experiment you would like to share with your colleagues, we encourage you to propose a 1-hour workshop for our PEER Workshop series.
- If you’ve recently read a book about pedagogy that you think your colleagues would enjoy, we invite you to facilitate one of the many reading groups we host each semester.
- If you have a passion for a particular pedagogical innovation, and want to work together with faculty to pursue intensive projects related to that innovation, consider proposing and facilitating one of our annual faculty learning communities.
- Finally, if you simply want to be a generalized champion for the CAT, advocating for the work that we do, organizing colleagues to participate, and providing helpful feedback, you can join our new Faculty Liaisons Group. Liaisons will be added to a special CAT e-mail list and invited to attend informational meetings once a year.
Whether you want to become a Liaison, join our University Committee, or present a workshop, the easiest way to get in touch is through our Consultation Form. We look forward to working with you!
