>>Join us for the annual Innovations in Teaching & Learning conference on Sept. 14th!
We’re celebrating our 10th year with our theme: “Small Changes, Big Impact: 10 Years of ITL.” This fantastic event brings together Mason’s best instructors from all fields and levels to share their strategies for teaching—through lively demonstrations, engaging workshops, and panel presentations. You will walk away with something to use in your class the next week or the next semester. Whether you’re full time faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, or support staff we hope that you can join us for an inspiring day filled with conversation, food, and fun!

>>Faculty Conversations: Tuesday August 21, 1:30-4:15 pm
All faculty—new and returning, full-time and adjunct and graduate instructors—are invited to our Faculty Conversations the afternoon of Tuesday, August 21, in Innovation Hall (most sessions are on the third floor). We have sessions at 1:30 that address assignment-design for Mason Impact courses (supporting student research and civic engagement), tips for seeking research funding, and building inclusive classrooms. Our 3:00 sessions focus on active learning, identifying and supporting distressed students, and gaining strategies for thriving as early-career faculty members. After the workshops, we’ll head over to the Mason Club for our second annual faculty Social Hour! No registration required.

These are some of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) posed by Faculty and GTAs. Find out more here.
