The Reflective Teaching Community Announces New Remote Sessions for Faculty Worldwide

Based on growing demand, the Reflective Teaching Community announces that it will hold remote sessions of the learning community via WebEx beginning in January.

These sessions continue the learning community’s year-long exploration of the theme of experiential and place-based learning, opening up these conversations to faculty across our network. In order to accommodate as many locations as possible, these sessions will be held at 8:30 or 9 a.m. central time.

These sessions will be co-hosted by the Faculty Development Center and the Online Learning Center, and all full-time and part-time instructors across Webster’s worldwide network are invited to join us, including on-ground instructors, online instructors, and WebNet+ instructors. These informal conversations are opportunities to share effective teaching strategies and build community across the network.
