Creating a Climate of Collaboration and Support through Mentoring
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
3:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316
Light refreshments provided.   

Coordinated by Janice Elich Monroe
Faculty Development Coordinator

Mentoring is an organizational practice whose time has come.  In today's competitive business climate, the need for continuous learning has never been greater.  At the same time, the hunger for human connection and relationship has never been more palpable.  Because mentoring combines the impact of learning with the compelling human need for connection, it leaves individuals better able to deepen their personal capacity and maintain organizational vitality in the face of continuous challenge and change. --Lois J. Zachary 2005

This workshop will begin with a discussion about effective mentoring relationships.  The role and responsibilities of mentors and mentees will be discussed.  There will be an opportunity to get to know each other and to form mentoring groups that are meaningful and productive.

Writing Intensive Workshop
Monday, September 24, 2012
3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316

Light refreshments provided.

Presented by Susan Delaney, Assistant Professor
Department of Writing

What do we mean by “writing intensive”? And how can a faculty member effectively manage the “paper load” that accompanies writing in a course? This workshop will introduce the core principles of writing across the curriculum (WAC) and review the ICC description of writing intensive courses. Faculty will have the opportunity to workshop a major assignment, crafting a sequence of writing activities that is both manageable and pedagogically sound.
