Join your fellow adjuncts for a reading and discussion group that focuses on successful teaching practices. You’ll learn from each other and broaden your network too.
Teaching topics will be chosen by the group at the first meeting. Dr. Meg Morgan, group facilitator, will share articles and chapters for each topic to guide the discussions. These articles will provide context that will enable you to discuss and debate the topics. However, this is an informal and friendly group -- so it’s ok if you haven’t finished all the reading ;-)
Possible topics might include:
Setting the tone of a class
Teaching styles and classroom communication
Strategies for teaching millennials and adults
Organizing your course and preparing lesson plans
Preparing and assessing assignments
Teaching large classes
Adjuncts are welcome to come to any meetings throughout the semester - so please join us for lively and engaged discussions.
Dr. Meg Morgan, Emeritus Associate Professor of English, Recipient of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching and Recipient of the Bank of America Award for Teaching Excellence will facilitate this reading group.
Meetings will be held on Fridays in Kennedy 221:
