Video from the May 17 Faculty Forum on preparing for SITT

Dear Faculty Colleagues,

Thanks to everyone who attended our Faculty Forum on Friday, May 17th. As you will see from the video, our cozy group discussed topics that might come up at the 2024 Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology, including detecting plagiarism, teaching with AI, hybrid teaching, etc. The chat provided an excellent reminder of the sense of camaraderie, community, and mutual support which infuses SITT with optimism and good cheer.

Dear Faculty Colleagues,

Thanks to everyone who attended our DOLCE on Friday, April 5th. We enjoyed the engaging presentation from Victoria Cross speaking on “Encouraging and rewarding attendance and engagement without coercion.” Tor grades using a fascinating point-based system where a superfluity of available points provides students the autonomy to create their own path towards a passing grade in her Psychology classes.
