Meets five times this semester (9/6, 9/27, 10/18, 11/8 & 12/6) from 12:00-1:30
Each fall, the CAT invites new faculty members (those within their first two years at Wake Forest) to join together to talk about their teaching over a series of lunches. We read How Learning Works and participants are encouraged to share their challenges, strategies, and successes. Lunch will be provided.
To celebrate and support course-advising, the CAT is partnering with the Office of Academic Advising to facilitate a six-month Faculty Learning Community on the rewards and challenges of course-advising with first-year students. Participants were limited to those advising students in a course they are teaching in Fall 2019. They attended a day-long retreat on May 23, 2019 and will attend four further meetings throughout the fall semester (two elective workshops and two lunches with the FLC).
Meets three times this semester (9/20, 10/25 & 11/22) from 12:00-1:00
Are you interested in engaging in scholarship on student learning in your classroom by gathering and systematically analyzing evidence? Join your colleagues in this exploratory working group as we discuss how we might engage with our teaching in this manner. We will meet three times during the fall semester to explore our interests and experiences as well as how we might contribute to the scholarly research on university teaching within our disciplines and across disciplines. The group will also advise the CAT on models for more formal support for faculty engaging in these endeavors going forward.
The Curriculum Design and Assessment Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is designed to support members of the Wake Forest community who are working on revising or creating new curricula; seeking ways to collect more meaningful information about student learning; and using evidence of learning to continually improve program structures and outcomes.
