2017/18 Faculty Learning at Maryville
Each fall, Teaching Triads are formed combining new faculty and experienced Maryville faculty with the goal of learning more about ourselves through reflective practices, learning more about our students through, and to learn more about our teaching through observations and sharing with one another.
Real (Relating, Experiencing, Applying, Learning) is a five-day professional development event held in the fall prior to the start of classes.
Our Maryville Digital Methods Club meets monthly to discuss the latest in technology and how to incorporate it into the classroom.
Mary Ellen’s Book Corner
Dr. Mary Ellen Finch (of the Finch Center for Teaching and Learning) chooses great reads each semester that foster community, engagement, and growth in line with Marvyille values.
Teaching and Learning Colleagues (TLC)
TLC members are resources and mentors to other faculty members who desire support in developing the best possible learning environments for their students.
Perspectives Week 2017 featured a large group workshop, where faculty had the opportunity to complete a project related to teaching and learning. 92% of faculty who set their own goals during the week reported that they reached their goals.
Each Spring since 2005, Maryville University faculty have been invited to volunteer to participate in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Seminar for the purpose of studying their own teaching. It is up to a two year commitment that brings together an interdisciplinary group of faculty interested in examining and documenting their teaching and student learning.
