The Instructor Network
P.S. At our initial meeting of Instructors last Spring, a number of people indicated interest in a series of “Lunch and Learn’s,” lunchtime meetings where we would discuss issues of interest to Instructors. We sent out a survey recently to determine which topics are of greatest interest, and this one had significant interest. Others are on the way, including promotion to Professor of Teaching, scholarship of teaching practice, links between research and teaching, student health and learning, and more.
