Associate Faculty Teaching Forum

Save the Date

To promote the professional development of Associate Faculty (sometimes called part-time faculty, part-time lecturers, or adjunct faculty), the Center for Teaching and Learning holds an annual Associate Faculty Teaching Forum (AFTF) at the beginning of each fall semester.  This year, the event will be held on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, from 4:00-8:00 pm, at the Center for Teaching and Learning (located in University Library). The event will offer six sessions (forums) for associate faculty to engage in conversations with associate faculty colleagues and with CTL consultants about teaching methodologies,  classroom techniques, and about new ways of using technology in the classroom and online. All AFTF sessions are designed to encourage discussion and the sharing of ideas among new and experienced associate faculty instructors.
