This workshop will gather 14 faculty in their first years of teaching for a week in two successive summers and 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 the following:
  • 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

To this end, the workshop balances plenary sessions with small group discussions and workshop sessions, structured and unstructured social time, and time for relaxation, exercise, meditation, restoration, and lots of good food and drink.

Workshop Goals
The workshop will equip participants to:

  • Inhabit their unique identities as teachers
  • Reflect critically on their teaching practices
  • Understand and navigate institutional cultures

Participants will receive a stipend of $3,400 for full participation in the three sessions, plus local expenses and travel. We are limited in paying stipends to participants who are teaching in the U.S. under an H-1B visa.

Workshop Summer Fellowship or Grant
