This program will provide new and pre-tenure faculty with the opportunity to learn about timely and practical approaches for enhancing their teaching, while building their campus-wide network in an informal setting. Roundtable facilitated discussions on a range of topics in teaching and learning will combine evidence-based research with first-hand experience from participants and CTL staff.
Participants in this program will:
• apply evidence-based strategies for teaching to their own courses and classrooms (both face-to-face and online)
• develop a network of faculty, staff, and educational support professionals across campus
• convert Queen’s University’s institutional priorities for teaching and learning into manageable components of their own teaching practice
