Upcoming faculty development opportunities


Beginning February 6th: Advising Academy 

Are you interested in honing your advising skills... and earning some recognition for your efforts? Starting February 6th, we will sponsor a series of conversations about advising-related topics that will give you more tools to use in your advising conversations, and ways to assess your advising effectiveness. If you attend 4 of the sessions offered, you will receive recognition for completing the sequence (and be eligible for some as-of-now undetermined excellent prize. Stay tuned.) A complete list of workshops will be available soon; most will take place on non-Senate Thursdays from 10:30 - 11:30.   

April 4th: Friday Conversation on Student Research Writing with Sandra Jamieson

Sandra Jamieson, Director of Writing Across the Curriculum at Drew University, will be discussing her work with the Citation Project, a multi-institutional study that examines academic integrity, plagiarism, citation, and research writing. You can find more on The Citation Project here: http://site.citationproject.net and Jamieson's personal website is here: http://sandrajamieson.net. Many thanks to our librarians for organizing this event.
