The Graduate School is hosting its first Lunch & Learn workshop specifically for faculty. The goals for this first "Rethinking the Graduate Seminar" panel discussion is to talk about how alternative methods of delivery can enhance the way we teach graduate students. Guest speakers will include:

  • Dr. Frank Del Favero from the Department of Educational Leadership in the College of Education
  • Dr. Randy Gonzales from the Department of English in the College of Liberal Arts
  • Dr. Colleen Schwarz from the Department of Management in the College of Business of Administration

Each of these faculty members use a variety of tools, technologies, and strategies to teach face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses. They'll share their experiences -- the challenges as well as the successes -- as they embraced new technologies to teach graduate students.  Dr. Luke Dowden, Director of the Office of Distance Learning, will be on hand to answer any questions about the ways that the Office of Distance Learning -- and the technology it makes available to our faculty -- can support teaching hybrid and online graduate courses.

Register now. Not only will you get a free lunch, but you'll also walk away with ideas about how to bring more technology into your own graduate classroom. And, if that's not enough, think of this as a great way to meet and to engage with faculty from across campus about graduate education. It's a win-win all around.
