Programs and Forums
The Henneke Center for Academic Fulfillment hosts forums for educators to share their insights and expertise about how they pursue excellence in their teaching and how they advance their own, as well as their students', scholarly inquiry. By providing resources and creating opportunities for collegial conversations and cross-disciplinary exchanges, the Henneke Center strives to support faculty in their intellectual endeavors and professional aspirations, and to recognize and honor their many accomplished successes.
First Friday Faculty Forums
December 6, 2013 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in the President's Suite in the Faculty Club in ACAC
Wrapping Up. An informal exchange of the various assignments, writing prompts and projects TU professors use to help students reflect on what they’ve learned in the course of the semester and why it matters.
November 21, 2013 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. in the McFarlin Library Special Collections Classroom
Stalled Projects: Reconnect, Reframe, or Relinquish? Many of our writing projects are inactive, even though we keep hoping to "get back to them" in the near future. Stalled projects drain energy and induce guilt. This workshop explores how and why we stall, and offers strategies to move forward. The goal is to renew contact with at least one stalled project, deciding whether to reconnect, reframe or relinquish it. We have the option of meeting again on December 5 and December 12 to encourage writing strategies for winter break and beyond. Email email@example.com to register.
April 30, 2014 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. Location TBA
Writing Boot Camp. Turn your best lecture anecdote, your favorite academic story, or your most interesting disciplinary question into a lively two-page essay for the 2nd edition of the A Life of Inquiry collection of TU faculty-written essays.
