Submit Fall 2023 Faculty Development Day proposals

The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence is accepting proposals for Fall 2023 Faculty Development Day, which will focus on the theme “teaching for the future.”

Instructors play an essential role in influencing student learning. Good instructors can also stimulate and guide students’ development so that their achievements exceed expectations. They have the potential to level the playing field and provide opportunities for success to all their students. Instructors can inspire students to innovate, think and reflect critically, and work collaboratively with others. Sharing best practices with our colleagues also helps us all achieve excellence in teaching so our students can excel in learning.

This Faculty Development Day allows like-minded, future-facing educators who are passionate to come together to share ways to ensure today’s students are supported and prepared for everything their futures have to offer.
