Assessment Inclusive Teaching Practices Pedagogy

OTL Conference Room (Anderson Academic Commons 345)

The Heart of Higher Education is an opportunity to gather as a DU community to share the challenges and opportunities of transcending the institutional, professional and personal choices that tend to separate core identity/integrity from day to day actions. The meetings are open to all faculty (of any rank) and staff (of any title).  The Conversations are hosted by the Office of Teaching and Learning and facilitated by OTL Faculty Teaching Fellow, Professor Paul Michalec from the Morgridge College of Education. The Heart of Higher Education Conversations create a positive and constructive space where staff and faculty can explore ways of re-connecting calling with professional responsibilities. Our time together is bounded by norms designed to create an open invitation to share while respecting individual choices to not share at a particular time. Prior to each meeting an agenda and brief reflective reading is sent out.

Bring your lunch.  Come late or leave early.  This is an invitation for self-care.  No guilt necessary.

Faculty Development

OTL Conference Room (Anderson Academic Commons 345)

Does the idea of “work-life” balance make you want to laugh – or cry – as you juggle raising children and your academic workload? You are not alone! The Parenting and Productivity group will foster a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere to tackle the specific challenges facing academics who are parenting children (or anyone else who provides time-intensive and physically demanding dependent care). Join us for donuts and a hot beverage as we watch and discuss NCFDD’s four-week series on Parenting and Productivity. We will meet in the OTL Conference Room (room number) from 8:30-10:00 a.m. on January 14, 28, February 11, and 25, 2020 from 8:30-10:00 a.m. Feel free to come or leave early and to join us as you are able.
