The Faculty Center holds monthly events during the semester, typically on Tuesdays. These events offer two or more concurrent sessions in each of three time slots, much like a mini conference. By their very nature, they are held in-person only, with remote options only available when the entire event is held online.

Each Teaching and Learning Day is announced several weeks before the event, and participants sign up to reserve a spot (participation is capped at 75). This event is for full-time faculty only, and we provide lunch in the form of pizza, salad, and subs from Publix. Since participation is limited, we ask that faculty only sign up if they can attend at least two sessions.

We do not record these sessions, since we prioritize the networking and sharing elements of the face-to-face experience. You’re always welcome to contact presenters to see if they’d be willing to share materials with you separately.

The third event of fall and spring terms (November and April) is held virtually, and usually consists of only single online workshop. Summer events are also held virtually.
