Tools for Success is a year-long FLC designed for teaching and professional faculty in the assistant rank at the University of Denver. The FLC will explore areas essential to the success of teaching faculty including community building, effective instruction, wellness, DU culture, promotion, national trends, inclusive excellence, and university resources. The monthly sessions in the fall will focus on community building and navigating transitions. The bi-weekly winter sessions are organized around the book (Inclusive Collegiality and Nontenure-Track Faculty: Engaging All Faculty as Colleagues to Promote Healthy Departments and Institutions) and learnings important to advancement, promotion, and university culture. In the spring quarter, the bi-weekly sessions will focus on the scholar/teacher model of excellence. We will form a Scholarship on Teaching and Learning (SOTL) group with the intent of writing about and publishing on our experiences as teaching and professional faculty in higher education.

The FLC will be led by Dr. Laura Sponsler (Resident Scholar - Teaching and Professional Faculty) and Dr. Paul Michalec (OTL Faculty Teaching Fellow). Laura and Paul are clinical professors at the Morgridge College of Education.

Fall sessions are Sept 25th, October 30th, and November 20th (9:00-10:30 am). Please use the following Zoom link https://udenver.zoom.us/my/drlaurasponsler

Winter and spring sessions will be set based on group teaching and administrative responsibilities.
