The Fall 2013 Jacob Spori Teaching Summit is scheduled for September 26-27, 2013. The retreat will begin Thursday afternoon at 4:30 and will conclude Friday evening at 8 p.m. Faculty are encouraged to plan now and make adjustments to fit this event into their syllabi for the upcoming fall semester.
The Spori Summit is patterned on the Great Teacher's Seminar model and is designed to allow open discussion about teaching challenges and successes with colleagues from across all disciplines. This year's retreat will be held at the Sky Mountain Lodge (just outside Victor, ID), and will feature Evan Hansen from the Physics Department as facilitator.
This retreat allows professors from various backgrounds the opportunity to share ideas and about instruction in a relaxed atmosphere. It is also an opportunity to develop lasting friendships with colleagues from across campus that care deeply about learning the art of teaching.
Registration for the Fall 2013 Spori Summit is now open. To reserve a place in advance, please send an email with your name and department or college to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reservations need to be confirmed by Friday, September 20th.
