First Friday Faculty Roundtable
May 2 event an opportunity for faculty to share teaching insights
2:59 p.m., April 24, 2014--Those who have a teaching topic or question they want to discuss with colleagues from across campus or who would like to meet informally with other University of Delaware faculty members who share an interest in teaching are invited to the First Friday Faculty Roundtable on May 2.
The May 2 roundtable will let participants turn the tables, so to speak, and set the session agenda.
New name, new approach
Faculty meet up
Starting at 3:30 p.m. in 208 Gore Hall, participants will set the agenda for the roundtable, using an “unconference” format. At 5 p.m., participants will adjourn to the Gore Hall rotunda for an end of semester reception.
The First Friday Roundtable series has proven popular during the academic year, allowing teaching faculty to explore a range of topics such as building strong student teams, using writing to increase student engagement, and documenting teaching effectiveness.
At the May 2 roundtable, the topics will be determined by the ideas and questions brought by the participants. The session will be an opportunity for teaching faculty to bring forward topics that have not surfaced at previous events or to dive deeper into ideas introduced elsewhere. Participants will set the direction for the conversations at this session and influence topics covered in future faculty workshops.
Everyone who teaches at the University of Delaware is invited to attend the First Friday Roundtables. New participants in this series are welcome; registration is requested, but walk-ins are welcome.
