Faculty members are invited to join Robert Parker with iClicker on Monday, March 19th, at either 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. in the Faculty Multimedia Center, CB1-202, for an information session on how to best use iClicker. Instructors can use it to guide class discussions, to take attendance, and to present prepared questions. Their mobile solution, iClicker Reef, now allows you to ask targeted questions and run an exit poll at the end of your lecture. If you are interested but aren't able to make it, please reach out to Robert Parker at 404-615-4537 or robert.parker@macmillan.com and he would be happy to meet with you one-on-one.

FACULTY WRITING CLUB SPRING 2018
Join a faculty writing club to start your spring off with a focus on productivity and camaraderie. Having trouble getting into a good writing rhythm? Need to get away from your office to get a change of perspective and a little privacy? Forget the coffee shop—join your colleagues on Thursday and Friday mornings from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. in FCTL for a loosely structured writing session. We'll take five or six minutes each week to go around the room and state a goal for the time block and then spend the rest of the time working on our individual projects. Bring your own laptop or use an FCTL computer. And of course there will be coffee. Everyone is welcome!
