To encourage informal, cross-disciplinary conversations about pedagogy, 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!

Explore three issues affecting student activism today: narratives, disruption, and institutional outcomes. This workshop invites faculty from different institutions and disciplines to engage with current student protests, contextualizing them within a longer history of student activism, current political and media landscapes, and the changing institutional conditions of liberal arts colleges. If you are interested in attending this workshop, support is available from an AALAC workshop grant to cover travel expenses and lodging. Please contact Linus Owens or Catia Confortini.
