Working Group Kick-off

June 8, 9AM-12PM ET

Lead Facilitator: Christine Von Renesse (Westfield State University)

Secondary Facilitators: Francesca Gandini (Kalamazoo College), Shanna Simpson-Singleton (Wayne State University), Nina White (University of Michigan)

Are you interested in learning together with peers passionate about teaching with inquiry? Join us June 8 as we plan and kick-off small summer working groups, focused on teaching projects of your choice. Working with your peers and receiving mentorship from organizers over two months, you will think and learn deeply about your own teaching.

You will receive funding from AMiIBL to brainstorm your ideas and leave the working session with a team project to work on. You can bring your own project idea---like reading a book, trying a new tool, writing a course module, etc.---and/or generate ideas at the working session. Work with your team over the summer however you see fit, and share what you learned with a larger group of peers on Tuesday, July 27.

For your preparation and participation on June 8, you will receive a stipend of $200. At the close of the meeting, if you commit to working on a project with a small team of faculty and giving a brief presentation of your work on Tuesday, July 27, you will receive an additional $300 (for a total of $500).

Funding is limited to 15 participants---register soon to claim your spot.

This workshop is jointly funded by University of Michigan and AMiIBL.
