CFDE Newsletter - January 2017Message from the Director
Welcome to the Spring Semester. We have an exciting set of events and programs planned. Here, I want to congratulate the fabulous staff of the CFDE who continue to do such stellar work in expanding and deepen our offerings to faculty. In particular, I appreciate the energy devoted recently to producing knowledge about faculty development. Since our last newsletter last fall, Allison Adams’s article on "Helping Professors Find Time to Think" was published in The Chronicle of Higher Education; Vialla Hartfield-Méndez presented at the Modern Languages Association on our new Pre-Texts initiative; Stephanie Parisi gave two presentations at the Online Learning Consortium International conference; and Donna Troka co-authored an article in the journal Radical Teacher titled "The Challenges of Teaching About the Black Lives Matter Movement: A Dialogue." In addition, the ILA sidecar class she co-taught with Professor Dianne Stewart on “The Power of Black Self Love” has received a lot of attention, including coverage in Teen Vogue and an interview on the GPB program On Second Thought.
We look forward to working with you in 2017!
