In addition to our flagship Writing Fellows Program, the Center runs several programs designed to support teaching across the college. Our philosophy for faculty development mirrors our philosophy for student development. All workshops and discussions are faculty-centered: the faculty are the experts; our role is to facilitate thinking and discussion driven by that expertise.
We recently began what we hope will become a tradition, hosting monthly, informal discussions on effective pedagogy open to all Cooper faculty. The breakfasts are held outdoors on the Alumni Roof Terrace. To keep the group at a good size for discussion, faculty spots are limited.
Faculty Development Workshops
The Center hosts a number of faculty development workshops each year (with at least eight planned for the 2021-22 academic year). The workshops attract faculty from the three schools and HSS, creating a vibrant, growing teaching community that stretches across the disciplines. Topics focus on strategies that promote effective teaching and better student learning.
Keep an eye on this space for details on this year’s faculty workshop lineup.
