Reflective Teaching Community 2015-16 Schedule

The 2015-16 Reflective Teaching Community (RTC), an open monthly discussion about teaching and learning, begins with its first meeting on Friday, Sept. 11, 2015. 

This year’s RTC will focus on practices faculty members use to help students to be engaged lifelong learners by exploring four themes of student engagement—Motivation and Agency, Transactional Engagement, Institutional Support, and Transformation.

The Faculty Development Center invites all full- and part-time faculty members and academic partners across disciplines to be a part of this community. Monthly meetings are held on Fridays from 12-1 p.m. in the FDC Suite. Lunch is served. The 2015-16 RTC schedule is as follows:
