Teaching and Scholarship Renewal Week

Each May, the Teaching & Learning Initiative sponsors a series of workshops for faculty to take a break and deepen their practice as educators. The workshops emphasize innovative and high impact teaching practices. Topics range from teaching writing to backwards course design to using technology in student projects to designing inclusive syllabi to object- and team-based learning.  This year our keynote speaker will be Dr. Stephen Brookfield.

Save the date for the 2018 Program which will be May 14-16th! 2018 Program /  Registration Form

Faculty Fellows

The Faculty Fellows program provides MHC faculty with an opportunity to immerse themselves in the literature on pedagogical innovation and best teaching practices, while also making an original contribution to the literature themselves.

Open Classrooms Week

THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING OPEN CLASSROOMS WEEK from February 26- March 1, 2018! We look forward to hosting this event again in 2019.

During Open Classrooms, a number of MHC faculty will open their classrooms to us all, creating opportunities for conversations about teaching and learning across disciplines. This week is a great opportunity to explore new pedagogies, check out technologies and materials, and reflect on our own practices in the classroom.

The open classrooms listing includes various tags so you can check out things that most appeal to you. Please be sure to sign up so faculty know how many guests to expect. 

The week culminates in the  Faculty Awards Ceremony, where we can celebrate all the amazing work done in MHC classrooms, while toasting our new award winners:

We will also have a follow-up discussion. Lunch provided!
