From the Director’s Desk…

The Faculty Hub is excited to announce a few upcoming events that align with our faculty development goals. We also have a few “save the date” opportunities for which pre-registration will be available soon.

October 8, 2019, 12-1 pm in the Richmond Room of HDC: We invite a representative of each academic department, program or unit or campus partner to Meet the Faculty Hub and learn more about our programming as we also learn how we can help you. The event requires registration.

Faculty Writing Space is still available on Friday mornings, every week. This is a chance to move forward on your writing projects. Until the space is filled, faculty may commit to all remaining weeks of the semester or participate less frequently. Please click here to reserve a space.

Don’t forget about our Workshops To-Go option for scheduling hands-on training at a time that meets your schedule. We invite departments, programs, faculty learning communities, communities of practice or other assembled groups of faculty to benefit from this opportunity for assistance. You may also request customized workshops. Go to our Programming and Events tab and scroll down to Workshops To-Go to learn more.

We want to point your attention to our first Hub Talk – an engaging format for presentation and discussion. Hub Talks will include an 18 minute presentation on an intriguing question or topic followed by a deeper discussion with your faculty colleagues. The talk begins promptly at 12:12 pm (easy to remember) and the discussion runs from 12:30-1 pm. You are invited to arrive early for a light lunch and visit with your colleagues. Hub Talks will help us share scholarship and teaching interests and build community among the faculty. We are thankful for the following speakers who will help us initiate the program this year:

October 28, 2019, 12:12pm in the Whitehurst Living Room: What can a taxidermied horse tell us about public memory? – Dr. Nicole Maurantonio, Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Communication Studies. Please click here for more information and to register for the event.

January 23, 2020, 12:12 pm (location and title TBA): Dr. David Wilkins, Professor, E. Claiborne Robins Distinguished Professorship in Leadership Studies. Save the date – registration is coming soon.

Save the Date – May 6, 2020: Faculty Development Day! A focus on teaching for learning. More information is coming soon.
