To encourage informal, cross-disciplinary conversations about pedagogy, the John Crosland Jr. Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) offers new food for thought: "Experimenting As Teachers" (EAT) Lunches. When a pedagogical topic occurs to you, the CTL will buy a private, informal lunch for you and up to seven faculty members who wish to join the conversation. To submit an EAT Lunch topic, fill out the EAT Proposal Form and the CTL will coordinate the lunch for you.
Once you submit the online form, the CTL will announce your topic in the soonest possible VPAA newsletter and invite others to join. With your assistance, the CTL selects participants from those who express interest. Lunch provided in the CTL.
Ideally, participants will be a selection of friendly, engaged colleagues from a variety of disciplines, perhaps some you've never met from other departments of the college. Let the EATing begin!
