Brown Bag Discussions offer faculty an opportunity to share lunch together and listen to their colleagues speak about topics related to learning and teaching. Come get a free lunch and experience interactive discussions presented by your friends. Faculty presenters have the freedom to speak about things they feel are innovative and enlightening, items they find successful in the classroom and best practices. Instructors who regularly participate in Brown Bag Discussions often come away with new ideas that make their teaching more meaningful.
