New Faculty Teaching Community

Every fall semester the TLC invites new faculty members (within your first two years at Wake Forest) to join together to talk about teaching, sharing classroom successes, problems, strategies and ideas. We will also have the opportunity to observe the classes of one or two senior faculty, and to meet with them for a conversation on what we learned from observing them teaching.

We read How Learning Works (Ambrose et al, 2010) to ground our discussions in the research on learning. The books are provided to participants by the TLC.  You may register for one of two groups, each of which will meet five times during the fall semester:

Tuesdays, 3:30-4:45pm: 9/22, 10/6, 10/20, 11/3, 11/17

Fridays, 10:00-11:15am: 9/18, 10/2, 10/23, 10/30, 11/13

Email Catherine Ross to register:, and please indicate whether you will participate in the Tuesday afternoon or the Friday morning group. Groups will meet in the Reynolda Hall 308 Conference Room.
