Classroom Conversations: Semester refelction

December 4, 2023 @ 8:15 am - 9:15 am

The Center for Collaboration & Development (CCD) is starting a new initiative titled Classroom Conversations. These conversations are designed to provide a space for faculty and instructional staff to talk about their classrooms and teaching successes and challenges in a supportive environment. There will be a general topic for each session but these are intended to be free flowing conversations which allow for a range of issues to be discussed. These conversations will take place once a month, typically on the first Monday of the month (unless it is a holiday).

I have reserved the CCD Spaces in both Portland (227 Glickman) and Gorham (Bailey Hall Library, Room 150) for these conversations. Both spaces have Keurig machines with coffee and tea available. I encourage you to gather with colleagues in community and conversation around how things in your classroom are going. 

Please note, this is not intended to be a formal or overly structured event. Rather, the CCD is providing a space and time for faculty to gather and converse with one another. Please feel free to bring a colleague with you who may not be aware of the Essential Connections initiative!
 
Classroom Conversations are scheduled for the following dates/times:
  • Monday, September 11, 8:15-9:15am
    Topic: Essential Connections–How have the first two weeks of the semester gone?
  • Monday, October 2, 8:15-9:15am
    Topic: Handling difficult situations in the classroom.
  • Monday, November 6, 8:15-9:15am
    Topic: AI in the classroom–how’s it going?

The Center for Collaboration & Development (CCD) works to offer programming and support to advance the teaching, research, scholarship, creative activity, and service capacity of the faculty and staff of the University of Southern Maine.
