This is a friendly reminder for all faculty, whether adjunct or full time:
For the past year, the Teaching & Creativity Center has asked the community to find ways to challenge ourselves, challenge our students. Now, it is time to share our innovations, our lessons, and our GIFTs.
Great Ideas for Teaching (GIFTs) are those best practices and aha! moments of teaching—little nuggets of learning and pedagogy—that are just too good to keep to one’s self. For example, maybe you designed a new assessment, tried out a new technique, or adapted an idea from a conference. Share your excitement with colleagues at the TCC’s Teaching & Learning Conference to be held on the morning of June 12, 2015.
We invite your proposal for a 10-minute session where you share your GIFT and discuss it with colleagues. Your proposal should include a brief (no more than a paragraph) description of the GIFT and its origin. Proposals will be accepted now through February 27. You may access the proposal submission form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GIFT2015
Thank you to those who have already submitted proposals!
