This workshop will gather 14 faculty in their first years of teaching for a week  in two successive summers and for a weekend winter retreat in a warm location. The purpose of the workshop is to create a community of committed and skilled teachers who will explore such topics as:

  • Strategies for effective teaching
  • Course design, assignments, and assessment
  • Teaching in one's institutional context
  • Dealing with religious, social, ethnic, racial, and learning diversities in the classroom
  • Balancing the competing demands of teaching, scholarship, service, and personal life
  • Issues of tenure preparation

The workshop balances plenary sessions with small group discussions, individual and collaborative work with the Wabash Center teaching resources, as well as structured and unstructured social time.

Workshop Goals

  • To create a collaborative environment in which undergraduate college and university faculty can engage in conversations that explore teaching and learning
  • To provide opportunity and resources for participants to develop their teaching skills
  • To develop reflective practices about self and work that negotiate the relationship between course design, research, self-presentation, and the larger purposes of one's teaching

Participants will receive a stipend of $3,400 for full participation in the three sessions, plus local expenses and travel.

Please Note: U.S. Law prohibits the Wabash Center from paying stipends to participants with certain classes of foreign national status. The Wabash Center is, however, able to reimburse ALL participants for travel and other expenses. Immigration status has no bearing on the Wabash Center's selection of participants. It impacts only our ability to pay these participants a stipend. We deeply regret these restrictions but are confident that participants who are not eligible for a stipend will nonetheless find our programs valuable even without a stipend.
