Faculty Teaching Circles

Our teaching circles have started back up for the fall semester! We are offering these in person but also giving folks the option to attend remotely via ZOOM. Circles are designed to help faculty develop course-specific strategies around inclusive practices in the classroom. The Circles are led by faculty peer facilitators and combine learning with plenty of discussion and feedback about what is, and isn’t, working for participants. We recognize that individual faculty members have different styles and that our College of Science has many different levels, sizes, and types of courses. Therefore, we don’t seek to tell faculty what to do, but instead encourage them to think about how best to adapt inclusive strategies to their own classrooms.
