A variety of workshops are planned each year around faculty requests. Most workshops last one hour at various times during the week.
Colloquium Orientation Brown Bag Lunch Series
Orientation sessions for those interested in teaching the University Colloquium will be held monthly this spring. These brown bag lunch sessions will also be open to contributing faculty from all colleges or adjunct faculty currently teaching the course who want to rejuvenate a particular component of their class.
If you are interested in teaching University Colloquium for the first time, you will need to attend 3 of the 4 orientation sessions as well as complete a teaching application (further requirements include a Masters or doctoral degree and graduate credits or experience in relevant areas). This orientation will introduce you to the philosophy of the course and explain the logistical pieces and parts of the class itself. These orientations only happen once per year, so we encourage you to attend. Space is limited.
