Welcome and Overview
|9:10 - 9:50 a.m.
Plenary: "Faculty Speed Dating"
The plenary will feature faculty speed dating which will give faculty an opportunity to learn from and share with their colleagues across divisions. Faculty will be given a colored name tag based on their academic division. During the speed dating event you should find someone with a different colored name tag during each rotation. During each "date" you will have 5-7 minutes to discuss the question posted. When the bell sounds you will get a new "date" and a new question.
Questions for Faculty Speed Dating (5-7 minutes per question):
- What do you do for research/Scholarship?
- What is the thing you struggle with most in the classroom?
- How do you facilitate rather than control the conversation when it comes to difficult topics in the classroom?
- How do you know if you have been effective in the classroom (a class session vs whole semester)?
- What are alternate ways that you assess student learning rather than standard testing?
- What's the most creative/effective feedback tool you've used or seen used?
