CFDE Newsletter, January 2018

CFDE Director Message from the Director

Dear Faculty,

Welcome back for our second semester 2017-2018. We are thrilled to be engaged with you in your research, writing, teaching, and careers! This semester we have a busy schedule of events. As ever, we have ongoing writing groups and a book club (we are reading Whistling Vivaldi) and a series of workshops. In particular, I want to draw your attention to our Innovative Pedagogies series, which highlights key areas of teaching. Our first event is “Involving Undergraduates in Research,” the second on community partners as teachers, and the final one is a panel of faculty discussing their experiences teaching a massive open online course (MOOC) through our partnership with Coursera and in particular how such courses can have a social impact on making the world a better place! Finally, do join us on February 12, at 4pm for our wonderful annual event, Feast of Words, where we celebrate all the faculty who published books in 2017.

I wish you a very happy and productive spring semester.
