real week 2019

The Center for Teaching and Learning and Faculty Development Committee welcome you to REAL Week 2019! REAL week is week-long, internal, teaching and learning convention. Since 2015, faculty have facilitated 150+ sessions available to their colleagues.

This year, we will be offering sessions and workshops like “Discussing Discussing: Good Practice for On-ground and Online Classroom Discussions,” Incorporating Research into Your Classrooms,” “The Authentic Experiment,” and “Positive Practices to Boost Student Engagement and Resilience” available for all Maryville faculty.

Many of you have approached us about moving Unit and Departmental meetings earlier in the week. Unit meetings will gather on Monday, August 12th. Please wait to hear more from your Deans. (Adjunct faculty are not required to be present, but may be invited to events through your schools/colleges on Monday).

Because “Communication” is our theme this fall: Please welcome The Second City Works to Maryville University – the experts in interactions and communication. This experience will take place on Tuesday, August 13th and is available only to Full Time Faculty this year.

Wednesday, August 14th and Thursday, August 15th will proceed with concurrent interactive sessions that have become synonymous with REAL week. Everyone who teaches Maryville students is encouraged to attend. Tracks for New Faculty and Adjunct Faculty are available. More details on the Google Docs below.

The Legal Update has been included into REAL week for the second year in a row. Please join us on Friday for the Legal Update and break out sessions before lunch.

Remember to download our CTL app to get the latest updates, and specifics on locations and session descriptions. Please add the sessions you are most interested in to “My Schedule.” From our end, we can start to see how many people are interested so we can put these sessions in the best possible locations.


Here are our objectives:

• I will draw upon my Active Learning experiences during REAL week as I communicate with colleagues and students.
• I collaborated effectively with colleagues during the Second City Works experience.
• I attended sessions that promote teaching Maryville students Characteristics of a Maryville Graduate.
• I gained new insights on how to utilize Canvas more effectively and/or creatively in the classroom.
