Collaborative Faculty Discussion Groups on Excellence in Teaching
The CEU Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a series of collaborative faculty discussion groups on issues that are of special interest to academics in their first years of university teaching. Informed by a growing body of research on teaching in various disciplines and the development of scholars as teachers, these discussion groups are facilitated by faculty from the Center for Teaching and Learning and are designed in collaboration with the discussion group members. Specific topics are determined by the participants and organized around issues of mutual interest. Topics include, for example: how to survive and thrive in your first years of teaching; resources and approaches to teaching in your specific discipline; doctoral supervision and feedback on theses; discussion leadership; assessment and grading; and academic blogging.
