SCSU Teaching Academy

You are invited to participate in the 2016 SCSU Teaching Academy on "Undisciplined Faculty:  Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Teaching Innovation" to be held Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24, from 8:30am – 4:30pm, in Engleman A120. Join your colleagues for a refreshing professional development event featuring an interactive keynote, workshops by SCSU's model Teacher/Scholars on pedagogy, inquiry, technology, and student success, and informal dialogue.

The keynote, by Dr. Janina Lenger Tosic, is "Interdisciplinary Collaboration as a Jump into the Deep End: Jacuzzi or Arctic Ocean?" Dr. Tosic received her PhD in 2011 in the field of bioorganic chemistry at Bielefeld University, Germany. Since 2009 she is a faculty developer and consultant for curriculum (re)design within the European higher education system. Her focus is on project- and research-based as well as writing-intensive teaching and integrated curriculum design. Currently she works at a long-term change project with a department of engineering to revamp their first year curricular and extra-curricular activities by interdisciplinary team-teaching with the "natives." The keynote will focus on how students benefit from interdisciplinary courses, how to integrate interdisciplinary elements into your own teaching, and creating your own teaching vision.

To celebrate our tradition of collaboration and innovation, we are hosting a Poster Session on Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 to 4:30pm in ENB 121.  We encourage all faculty to share their creative activities. "Recycled," "gently used," recently presented, or works-in-progress are welcome. Interdisciplinary projects, collaborative faculty research, and Scholarship on Teaching and Learning (SoTL) are particularly encouraged.
