Teaching and Scholarship Renewal Week

Save the Date: May 13-15, 2019

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.

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

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

The week culminates in the Faculty Awards Ceremony, where we can celebrate all the amazing work done in MHC classrooms.

Open Classrooms Week 2019 will be held February 25–March 1. The Faculty Awards Ceremony will be held on Thursday, February 28.
