CTL hosting mini-retreat on faculty development

Salve Regina’s Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting a mini-retreat for individuals from New England colleges and universities who are responsible for faculty development.

The complimentary retreat will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, July 21 in the Young Building. Participants will focus on relationship building; sharing successes, challenges, information and ideas; planning for the future; and creating a vision for staying connected for ongoing support.

Designed to be an interactive conversation, the retreat will be facilitated by Dr. Edward O’Neill. After almost 10 years innovating his own classroom teaching, O’Neill “flipped” the classroom in 2001 and has since supported faculty teaching at Stanford University, the University of Southern California and Yale University.

O’Neill’s work has included supporting student multimedia assignments, managing a faculty development grant program and reporting to the director of faculty development at Yale’s Center for Teaching and Learning. In addition to co-hosting a well-known podcast on pedagogy (the Teach Better Podcast), he writes and publishes about planning, implementing and supporting learning technology initiatives.

For more information, contact Carole Currie, director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, at (401) 341-2329 or carole.currie@salve.edu.
