Faculty College 2014
This spring, UWM and CIPD will select four participants to attend this year's UW System Faculty College to be held on the UW-Richland Center campus from May 27 through May 30, 2014. Faculty and teaching academic staff are eligible.
Faculty College is the UW System's premier faculty development event. Each year, the College hosts approximately 100 faculty and instructional academic staff from across the System for three days of intensive exploration of teaching, learning, and curricular issues.
This year, OPID is pleased to have a new exciting schedule that is carefully and creatively designed to promote applications of contemplative teaching practice, learning theory, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Our mornings will begin with intensive seminars, which will be followed by robust round table discussions at lunch. The afternoons will be filled with interactive workshops, followed by a mindfulness series of kinetic learning activities.
In addition to the regularly scheduled sessions, we will feature the UW Women’s Studies Consortium’s “Exquisite Uterus: Art of Resistance” project and selections from the Wisconsin Teaching Fellows and Scholars poster session.
