Faculty-directed teaching centers have unique advantages and challenges as we seek to lead our campuses toward positive change. In this session, participants will explore models for faculty-led teaching centers, with an emphasis on identifying strategies for 1) “peer leadership” in faculty development, and 2) collaboration with administration or other campus units. Presenters will describe faculty-led centers at three different northern California universities. Additionally, this interactive session models several active learning tasks appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as faculty development workshops.
