The Committee on Teaching and Scholarship is accepting proposals from faculty who would like to organize panels for Faculty Development Day on Tuesday, May 5. Please send panel proposals to committee chair Lauretta Frederking, (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, April 10.
The Committee on Teaching and Scholarship cordially invites all regular faculty to submit proposals to receive funding from the Arthur Butine Faculty Development Fund. Faculty can download Butine application materials, review selection criteria, and consult the timeline for applications by visiting https://www.up.edu/academicsenate/tas/.
Submissions for post-Butine reports, new Butine submissions, and all supporting letters are now done through Moodle. The deadline for submission through Moodle and the applicants’ respective department chairs (if CAS) and deans is no later than noon on Friday, October 3, 2014. Please note also that applicants must discuss their Butine proposals with their respective deans prior to submitting applications for consideration.
The Committee on Teaching and Scholarship will host two workshops to review the Butine application process: Monday, September 8, 9-10 a.m., and Monday, September 8, 3-4 p.m., both in the Clark Library conference room.
A final reminder: All interim or completed project reports of previously funded proposals are due to Teaching and Scholarship through Moodle, as well as the appropriate dean, no later than Friday, September 26. Report forms can be downloaded from the website listed above. Please contact Lauretta Frederking (email@example.com) for further information.
All faculty and staff who wanted to attend the recent afternoon Teaching and Scholarship presentation by Lars Erik Larson but had previous commitments can see his talk, “Dialectical Teaching in a Righteous Age,” as a 22-minute podcast at this link: http://tinyurl.com/o57qdd4. Larsen’s talk is featured on the new Garaventa Center series Solloquia Tempestiva, the center’ first podcast from their mobile studio. All are invited to see a great sample of the caliber of teaching we have here at UP, and sending it viral wouldn’t hurt either.

Please contact Frederking at 8076 or firstname.lastname@example.org with proposals, questions, or requests for additional information. Committee members include Eric Anctil, Genevieve Brassard, Lauretta Frederking, Aziz Inan, Angela Hoffman, Kathleen McManus, Laurie McLary, Mark Meckler, Stephanie Salomone.
