Fall Celebration of Teaching and Learning
One of the many difficulties of the pandemic has been the inability to gather as a community. Over the past year, we all worked to (past?) the point of exhaustion to reimagine our work and to get through many personal and professional challenges. As a way of welcoming everyone back to campus and celebrating the amazing work of our colleagues, MCTL is pleased to host a Celebration of Teaching and Learning.
First and foremost, we hope that this event will offer a chance for all faculty and staff to reconnect. This event will also provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the incredible and innovative work of our colleagues. We are envisioning a conference-like structure that would allow people to attend whichever sessions interest them without an extensive time commitment. Although the scope of this celebration could be vast, we are going to focus the event around issues central to MCTL’s mission – teaching and learning. Below is a tentative schedule. More details will be shared in early August. We hope to see you there!
