Faculty Club works to enhance Teaching Effectiveness

Dear Colleagues,

The Faculty Club will be open this week during the usual hours, with gatherings on Wednesday and Thursday from 5:00 to 8:00.

Wednesday will involve general hob-nobbing, but Thursday night we will have a special theme.  Lee Rumbarger of the Teaching Effectiveness Program (TEP) will deliver the Six-o-Clock toast, saluting the care and creativity faculty take in their teaching.  She and others from her team will be mingling—so if you’ve ever wondered what they do and how they do it, or if you’ve ever wanted to bounce ideas off of these pros in a casual out-of-office setting, this is a great opportunity to do so.

No word yet on whether the bartenders are cooking up a custom “teaching effectiveness cocktail” for the evening…. come find out!

Hope to see you, and any guests you’d like to bring, one or both nights.

Yours, James Harper

Chair of the Faculty Club Board

    Ah, nothing like downing a few at Faculty Club to enhance one’s teaching effectiveness!

    I remember once when I was teaching an evening graduate course on a rather technical subject. Downed two Buds before class, didn’t think it was enough to matter for a subject I knew pretty well. IQ must have dropped 30 points! A travesty of a class (and it was 2 hrs worth). Learned my lesson.
