Webinar:  Faculty Commons: Taking Stock and Moving Forward

Facilitator: Newton Key and Michael Gillespie
Location: Online (Zoom)

Join your colleagues in March and April to reflect and build on this past year. March 25th, we will be looking back, reflecting on how this pandemic year affected our faculty roles at EIU. April 29th, we will be moving forward, building resilience and our courses towards a post-COVID.
Our guiding questions for both sessions are: what have we learned – about teaching and learning, about ourselves – over the past year?; what would we like to take forward into future semesters and years?This semester, all Faculty Commons are facilitated by FDIC Director Newton Key and FDIC Advisory Council Chair Michael Gillespie on the final Thursday of each month at 12:30 pm for collegial conversation and connection. Each month’s zoom connection is our virtual space, a common place to share and learn. Register for one and you will receive reminders (and link) for following months.
