Reflective Teaching Community

reflective teaching community

Are you looking for new ways to deliver your course content that move beyond the traditional lecture? Are you curious about exploring new techniques for determining if your students truly understand the course material? Perhaps you are just simply looking for a way to “shake things up” and increase student engagement? Do you wish there was a forum where you could share your teaching experiences and learn from others? Join your fellow Webster faculty members at the Reflective Teaching Community to discuss these issues and much more.

The Reflective Teaching Community (RTC) meets monthly to discuss topics in teaching and learning in a supportive environment of like-minded colleagues. We invite all full-time and part-time faculty and academic partners to join us as we share teaching perspectives and experiences across disciplines.

Knowing We Matter: Assessing Our Impact in the Classroom

As teachers dedicated to engaged learning, how do we know that our efforts make a difference? This year’s Reflective Teaching Community will focus on assessing how well we’re helping our students learn. Articles and discussions will feature several recurring topics, including creating opportunities for change in our teaching, understanding our students’ perceptions of teaching effectiveness, helping our students grow through meaningful assessment, and practical advice for increasing our own motivation to develop as teachers and scholars.

Meeting dates for 2018-19:

  • Friday, September 7, 2018
  • Friday, October 5, 2018
  • Friday, November 2, 2018
  • Friday, December 7, 2018
  • Friday, February 1, 2019
  • Friday, March 1, 2019
  • Friday, April 5, 2019

All of our meetings are held on Fridays from 12 to 1 pm in the Faculty Development Center Suite (Emerson Library 420), and a pizza lunch is served. Join us!
