CUPFA & CTL MicroLink Discussions

We are happy to announce that CUPFA has teamed up with Concordia’s Centre for Teaching and Learning to present this year’s first MicroLink event, which will take place on Thursday March 8th from 12:30-2:30. We are inviting part-time faculty, full-time faculty and students to participate in a round table discussion that focuses on the following question:

How can we radicalize pedagogy to enhance learning?

Instead of asking part-time faculty to present their research at the MicroLink, we would like to draw on the group’s experience as dedicated teachers and learners to delve into a variety of questions that concern us all. In order to facilitate the discussion, we have prepared a number of questions for you to ponder prior to the event:

How do you nurture passion?
How do you deal with difficult classroom situations?
How do you know what is important to teach?
How does research find its way into the classroom?
How do new technologies enhance and/or hinder learning?

Please think of an example of a teaching technique that you have tried or would like to try; a teaching challenge you don’t know how to resolve; or an example of how you may feel vulnerable in the classroom.

Please RRSP if you are interested in attending this MicroLink event by Wednesday, February 28 at 3:00 pm at info@cupfa.org. A light lunch will be served.

When: Thursday, March 8 from 12:30-2:30pm
Location:
Faubourg Tower, 1250 Guy Street, FB 620 (6th floor)
