Hello Everyone-
Below you’ll find information about activities at the Faculty Center and beyond.  When you have a moment, check out the development website for the next Quality Enhancement Plan, which will be chosen later this year.  Everyone in the UCF community is encouraged to submit ideas and suggestions.  Click here for more info:  http://undergrad.ucf.edu/QEP/ .
Have a great week!

All events will be held in CB1 207 unless otherwise noted. If you would like to participate in a workshop via webconferencing, please email fctl@ucf.edu to make arrangements.

Tuesday, July 15th
Faculty Writing Club 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Friday, July 18th
Faculty Writing Club 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Join a faculty writing club to 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!

If you tweet about teaching and learning issues, please follow me on Twitter @MelodyBowdon; I’ll follow you too!
