Call for Applications to Attend OPID's 2020 Faculty College
Applications due: Thursday, Dec 5, 2019
Keynote Speaker & Facilitator: Stephen Brookfield (John Ireland Chair at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minnesota and author of Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher, The Skillful Teacher, The Discussion Book, and, most recently, Teaching Race) NTLC is seeking 5 instructors to team up with the NTLC director to engage in deep and meaningful dialogue during the four-day workshop themed: Equity-Minded Pedagogy. The intent will be to bring back insights to Stout that will aid in strengthening equity-minded pedagogy-influenced programming. This will be a very impactful and reflective experience.
*UW System’s OPID will pay for lodging, meals, and programming for our UW-Stout participants (in addition to the Wisconsin Teaching Fellows & Scholars). Instructors will be assigned to a double suite, each with two private bedrooms and two bathrooms. Regarding getting there, NTLC will cover the cost of travel to and from the resort, with arrangements being made for a SUV that will enable us to carpool.
*Faculty College participants will be expected to write three one-page reflections at the end of Faculty College, the Fall 2020 semester, and Spring 2021 semester. A certificate of achievement will be sent to each participant in recognition of their dedication to excellence in teaching and learning.
