Faculty workshops focus on practical strategies for addressing common teaching challenges for faculty members of all ranks. These workshops draw on research-based best practices from the most recent literature in the field, and help participants consider ways to apply those best practices in their teaching. Workshops are facilitated by current LAS faculty recognized for their innovative teaching and pedagogy. Workshops are typically a mix of presentation, small group activities, and time set aside for individual reflection.
