April - Week 4

Hello Everyone-
Good luck with wrapping up grading and other semester activities in the next few days. Remember that we’re available all week to help you with planning your summer and fall courses. And please make a note that the Summer Faculty Development Conference will be held a little later than usual this year--during the week of May 6. We’ll be posting the schedule soon on the FCTL and partner group websites, so check it out and consider joining us for all or part of this event even if you’re not a funded participant. Below you'll find information about activities coming up this week at FCTL and beyond. Please note that starting this week the summer Faculty Writing Club will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Have a good week!
Melody

FACULTY WRITING CLUB 2013
Join a faculty writing club to start your summer off with a focus on productivity and camaraderie. Having trouble getting into a good writing rhythm? Need to get away from your office to get a change of perspective and a little privacy? Forget the coffee shop--join your colleagues on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. in FCTL for a loosely structured writing session. We'll take five or six minutes each week to go around the room and state a goal for the time block and then spend the rest of the time working on our individual projects. Bring your own laptop or use an FCTL computer. And of course there will be coffee. Everyone is welcome!
