This event brings faculty together for a day of conversation and workshops about topics that we deal with on a daily basis. It allows us to learn new techniques for teaching, to address issues that affect our work in and out of the classroom, and to share ideas with faculty from throughout the university. It is also a great reminder of how ongoing professional development can help make us better at what we do. What better way to model for our students the importance of lifelong learning and the pursuit of excellence than by attending Faculty Development Day and participating in some of the myriad of workshops.
The Celebration of Teaching and Learning is scheduled for the February reading week.
