Friday, September 27, 2013, 12:30-2:00 p.m.
Social Sciences Building 51, Room 1205
Faculty and staff interested in applying for Transformational Learning Opportunity (TLO) funds are invited to attend the TLO workshop titled, "Designing Successful Transformational Learning Opportunities (TLOs)." This session will provide an overview of the TLO concept, some examples of past successful TLOs, and guidelines for applying for financial support.
Manageable and Meaningful Assessment of Transformational Learning Experiences
Thursday, October 3, 2013, 3:00-4:30 p.m.
OFE/FA Conference Room, Building 16, Room 3108
UNF Faculty who apply for TLO funding design a wide variety of truly transformational learning experiences for students. Designing an assessment plan both enhances the TLO application and provides an important way to maximize student benefit from the experience. Yet assessing transformational learning objectives can be difficult because the objectives can be difficult to define, and because TLOs may not include graded assignments in the same way as other classes do. This workshop will help participants define transformational learning objectives and develop manageable assessment strategies for determining the impact of the TLO experience. Faculty and staff interested in applying for Transformational Learning Opportunity (TLO) funds are especially encouraged to attend.
The Path to Promotion and Tenure
Thursday, October 10, 2013, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Student Union Building 58W, Room 3806
The awarding of Tenure and Promotion (P&T) is a culmination of a multi-year process of preparation and professional distinction. In this panel discussion, faculty at different stages of the process will discuss the steps in the P&T process, the criteria for demonstrating professional excellence, and the multiple pathways toward promotion and tenure at UNF. This session will be especially helpful for new faculty and faculty who will apply for promotion and tenure in the coming years.
