One of our goals as a Center is to engage SU faculty in conversation around the deeper questions of academic practice, based on national and international Higher Education research. A key format for this is our series of lunchtime workshops, which are open to all SU faculty. Click here to see our current workshop offerings.
As a faculty member attending a faculty development workshop, you can expect
Our workshops are underpinned by research, most commonly externally published work and occasionally research we have conducted here on campus to find out how an issue relates to SU faculty.
We ensure that everyone has a chance to speak – at least in pairs or small groups, if not in the entire group – so that they can relate the content to their own work and can make their own contributions.
We take a social constructivist approach to our work, meaning that we see knowledge as being (a) constructed by individuals in their own specific way and (b) best constructed through interaction with others. Since that's our view of learning, we strive always to model it in our workshops so that you get to experience it first-hand.
