​The campus Writing Board and the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning are teaming up to offer an online mini-course, “The How To of Peer Review,” a a teaching practice​ of getting high-quality writing from your students by having them share and discuss their writing-in-progress with one another BEFORE they hand it in to you for a grade.

“The How To of Peer Review” consists of a series of instructional videos (about an hour of content) viewed during the scheduled week of the mini-course and discussed with faculty colleagues and the designer/instructor, Mike Michaud (Writing Board). Videos and discussion will be available to participants via Blackboard. This mini-course runs from Nov. 5-11. Registration is limited to 10 faculty members, and spots will be given out on a first-come first-served basis.

Learn more about “The How To of Peer Review” by watching this brief video. Click here for full details and registration information.​


​Want to rev up your course or more fully engage your students in your area of expertise by having them participate in research and creative activity? Come and learn about programs and resources available through the Center for Research and Creative Activity (CRCA). This workshop will be facilitated by CRCA Director​ Breea Govenar on  Friday, Nov. 2, from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning, Adams Library 406.


​The General Education program was designed by the faculty to offer our students the knowledge, skills and values that are associated with a liberal education, as articulated in the learning goals for all students at the college. Some faculty members participate in General Education directly through courses that we teach in the program, but all of us are working towards the Gen Ed learning goals throughout the curriculum. When we work with students to help them develop writing skills appropriate to their majors, we are part of Writing in the Discipline. When we teach our students to think critically about a problem in our discipline, we are furthering the “critical thinking” outcome. When we have students work in groups, we are helping them to improve their “collaborative work” skills. You get the idea... 

To learn more, come to an informative and interactive session on Friday, Nov. 16, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning in Adams Library 406​. This workshop is presented by Maureen Reddy, chair of the committee that designed the program and coordinator of the First Year Seminar Program; and James Magyar, chair of the Committee on General Education at the FCTL.​
