September 28th Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Day
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Day will offer an opportunity for faculty to explore study-design, SoTL methodologies, and data management and treatment as these topics relate to their own SoTL projects. Representatives from FCTL, IKM, OEAS, RITE, as well as an experienced SoTL researcher will facilitate sessions throughout the day. A panel of faculty from various disciplines who engage in SoTL research will share their experience and expertise. You can register at http://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d4fD6vpFGNVa3at before September 27th.

FACULTY WRITING CLUB FALL 2018
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 Thursday 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!
