Critical Conversations: Curriculum in a Post-Christian Culture
Led by Bernard Bull
Thursday September 6, 3:30 – 5:00pm in the Manor Living Room
This session is for faculty. During this session, we will consider curriculum in light of the current culture, a culture in which Christian teachings are sometimes defined or framed as intolerant, irrelevant, bigoted, and even potentially illegal. What are the implications for what and how we teach? How do we prepare students for faith and life in such a context?
Student Evaluation of Teaching: Getting the Meaningful Results You Want
Led by Robert Hill
Monday September 17, 4:10—4:50 pm in Science 101
The focus of this session is how to get your students to complete their online teaching evaluations and to take them seriously, a process that begins long before the end of the semester. We will explore strategies to solicit detailed, meaningful, and helpful student feedback.
