Food for Thought
Join us for lunch discussions on different aspects of Teaching, Learning and Assessment. The discussions are offered on two different days to accommodate your teaching schedule. They provide a forum for networking and exchanging ideas with colleagues across campus; there are no structured presentations or "experts."
Bring your lunch, your teaching stories, your ideas, successes, and challenges. We provide the venue and refreshments. Come any time between 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., stay as long as you wish. Kindly RSVP in advance. We look forward to your joining the discussions!

Small classes are often coveted as providing an optimal learning environment. Faculty feel they can dedicate significant attention to each student and students appreciate the faculty’s accessibility. Instruction tends to be discussion-based, grounded in student interest, needs, and engagement in peer learning.
Dr. Kelly-Anne Diamond, History will draw on her experience with teaching small classes. She will engage us in discussion of varied teaching approaches and reflection on rewards and challenges.
Join us to share aspects of your teaching small classes and explore rewards and challenges together.
