Description

This workshop will gather 14 early career faculty members from diverse scholarly specializations and institutional contexts (primarily teaching undergraduates), for a week in each of two successive summers and a winter weekend retreat. As a collaborative learning cohort of teacher-scholars, we will explore such topics as:

• Relationship between scholarship and teaching
• Professional and personal life in institutional context
• Implications of intersectionality in the classroom
• Course design and assessment
• Issues of technology in education
• Fellowship project design

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

Workshop Goals

  • Create a collaborative learning cohort of teacher-scholars 
  • Develop the practice of critical reflection on teaching
  • Articulate the relevance of our courses inside and outside the academy
  • Explore strategies for thriving in institutional and personal contexts

Honorarium and Fellowship

Participants will receive an honorarium of $3,500 for full participation in the three workshop sessions, plus local expenses and travel. In addition, participants are eligible to apply for a $5,000 workshop fellowship for work on a teaching project during the following academic year (2020-21).
