    Teaching Essentials Roundtable Discussion (Module 5: Using Student and Peer Feedback to Improve Teaching)

    Roundtable Discussions

    Presented by Sandra Abbey

    Would you like to refresh your teaching and continue the term with confidence? Would you like to connect with fellow instructors and unpack ideas about teaching and learning? If so, then we invite you (and all Park instructors) to join us for the fifth Teaching Essentials Roundtable Discussion for “Using Student and Peer Feedback to Improve Teaching”.


    Sandra Abbey, from the Gilbert campus center in Arizona, will facilitate the open discussion to unpack and discuss lessons learned and strategies for improved teaching. The featured topic of discussion on “Using Student and Peer Feedback to Improve Teaching” will draw from the Module 5 of the Teaching Essentials program - a self-paced, fully online, certification program that is available for free to all Park instructors.


    To view recordings and resources of previous Teaching Essentials roundtable discussions, check out the Teaching Essentials Certification page.


    (Note. Please complete Module 5 of the Teaching Essentials Certification before this session in order to actively participate in the discussion – approximately 15 min. to complete.)

    Virtual Faculty Writing Retreat

    Writing Retreat

    Sponsored by FCI, ParkWrites, and the Faculty Scholarship Circle
    Date & Time = Jun. 4th (Fri.) from 10am-12pm, CST
    Offsite = https://park.zoom.us/j/93739636246?pwd=a1MyeU1vVHNUUWhDU1lNTENpWmJXQT09


    We all struggle to find time in the busy semester to carve out time for our scholarship. It's hard to find time to write and set reasonable writing goals for shorter work times available. Join us for a virtual faculty writing retreat - we will be setting reasonable goals for an 85-minute writing session, sharing those goals in a small team, working on your scholarship for an 85-minute period, and then sharing out your accomplishments and plans for next steps.


    Tentative Session Agenda:

    1. Meet briefly in small breakout groups to help you set goals for your 85 minutes.
    2. Write for 85 minutes, working on whatever scholarly project you want. 
    3. Check-in and discuss with your breakout group what you accomplished and talk about setting achievable goals in the future.
    4. Discuss how Park can support scholarly writing in the future.
