What Would a Great CC Classroom for All look like? The Crown Faculty Center, The Butler Center, and the NEH Professorship invite interested students to apply to a Spring 2018 Teaching & Learning Circle: “Good to Great in the CC Classroom.” Inspiration for this Circle comes from The Butler Center’s Good to Great programs, collaborative learning communities elsewhere, and feedback that faculty and students would like support to move from awareness of classroom issues to actively addressing these classroom issues.
We propose that a group of faculty, staff, and students study this question over the spring of 2018, determining whether and how to move forward, and if in agreement, establishing the curriculum for the inaugural “Good to Great in the CC Classroom” program to deeply explore the classroom teaching environment, on the Block Plan.
To that end, we seek about 16 faculty, staff, and students to commit to this Teaching & Learning Circle. Participants would agree to attend all (or most) of the following events: MLK Jr Day programming on January 15, 2018; extended discussion and goal-setting, January 16, 2018; blockly working group of ~2 hours each block, at time set by participants; the Early Summer Faculty Retreat (May 23-25, 2018).
If you would like to participate in this Teaching & Learning Circle, please complete a short application here: tiny.cc/GtGCCC While we may be unable to invite all interested campus members into the first Circle, there will be many opportunities to participate this year and in the future.
