New Faculty Seminars on Teaching: Designing Better Discussions
New Faculty Seminars on Teaching
The New Faculty Seminars on Teaching are monthly gatherings where full-time faculty in their first two years at BC can discuss the fundamentals of teaching with colleagues. Seminar meetings are largely discussion-based, with CTE staff typically spending 10 - 15 minutes of each session sharing research and strategies relevant to the topic at hand.
October Offering: Designing Better Discussions
When classroom conversations go well they can be kinetic, exploratory, enabling everyone involved to consolidate and apply their learning and to come into a better understanding of the world. But discussions don’t always reach those heights, either because they never gain momentum or because they get derailed early. Whether you’re teaching seminars or looking to integrate discussion opportunities into a lecture or project-based course, join us for an overview on troubleshooting discussions. We’ll explore how that troubleshooting can inform future planning and you’ll have the chance to hear what’s worked—and what hasn’t—for your colleagues.
