We hope that you will join us for another term of New Faculty Community of Practice Meet-Ups.  We will be employing a flipped model where a 5-10 minute webinar will be sent to participants before the meeting, and then we will meet to discuss our responses to / engagement with it.

Confirmation and location of each meeting will be sent 1 week prior to each meeting.

Please note that each meeting must have a minimum of 3 participants or it will be cancelled.  Please also be reminded that you are very welcome to have a on a one-to-one consultation at any time.

The more the merrier!  Coffee/tea and refreshments served.

Meeting #4: Celebrating Success & Failure, May 30th, 4:30 – 6:00 pm, Peace Garden (or CoLab if raining)

The subject for discussion at the last meeting of the term will be Celebrating Success & Failure. The idea is to share some of the moments from your classes this term that stand out to you either for good or ill, and to get some feedback from your peers about them.  In order to further debrief, you are also invited to contribute to a chalk painting on the subject of teaching (participation is entirely optional).
