University Campus Faculty Development Day set for Tuesday, August 13

Saint Leo boasts a tradition of providing opportunities for faculty development in the fall and spring semesters. This fall, Faculty Development Day will be held 9 – 10 a.m., Tuesday, August 13, in the Student Community Center, Greenfelder-Denlinger Boardrooms.

The guest speaker, Dr. Michael Neal, associate professor and director of rhetoric and composition at Florida State University will present Enhancing Learning and Teaching with Writing.

Writing in college takes various forms, from posters, case studies, blog posts, lab reports, essays, research reports, book reviews, design notes, policy beliefs, and slide presentations. As research demonstrates, engaging in formal writing tasks like these and in smaller, informal writing assignments is critical to support student learning, Moreover, when appropriately designed, both informal and formal writing assignments can help faculty. In this interactive workshop, we’ll briefly consider why we might use writing in our teaching before focusing on some useful, easily modified ways to do so.
