21st Century Teaching for the 20th Century Teacher

The Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning is excited to announce the upcoming 2017 John P. Ellbogen Summer Faculty Institute, scheduled May 22-25th.

Are you a mid to later career faculty member (with 12 or more years of experience teaching in a full-time faculty/APL role)? Would you enjoy the opportunity to reflect on, reframe, and renew your teaching with a group of your peers? Apply for the 2017 John P. Ellbogen Summer Faculty Institute: 21st Century Teaching for the 20th Century Teacher. This four-day institute (May 22-25, 2017) will bring together teaching faculty and APLs from a variety of disciplines to reconnect with the excitement that originally led them into higher education teaching careers. Participants will engage in structured activities such as book discussions and workshops, as well as deep reflection and peer mentoring to guide them to re-energize and transform their vision for teaching.
