Upcoming Events for the Office of Faculty Enhancement

Faculty & Staff Appreciation BREAKFAST

Friday, September 05, 2014
7:30am - 9:30am

Location: Osprey Cafe


Cost: Free for all UNF Faculty & Staff

Every year, along with the Annual Convocation event, we celebrate all faculty and staff with a Faculty & Staff Appreciation meal. Traditionally, we would have a picnic with seating outside for everyone to enjoy. This year, because the Annual Convocation ceremony will be occurring earlier in the year, and because of Florida’s unpredictable weather, we are changing the appreciation meal to a Faculty & Staff Appreciation BREAKFAST. The Faculty & Staff Appreciation Breakfast will be held in the Osprey Café (click for map) on the same day as Convocation, Friday, Sept. 5th, from 7:30-9:30 a.m. Come and enjoy a special breakfast meal with your colleagues and coworkers from around the campus. The chefs at the Osprey Café  have prepared a special menu just for this event. The Faculty & Staff Appreciation Breakfast is free to faculty and staff. 
The meal will require a ticket. We encourage each department to order tickets for their staff. To order your tickets, please complete the information survey at http://bit.ly/unfappbrkfst. Once you have ordered your tickets, you can pick up your tickets on Monday-Friday, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon, and from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Office of Faculty Enhancement (click for map), Building 16, Room 3111.

 

We look forward to enjoying this time of celebration and recognition with our friends and colleagues from across the campus.

Designing Successful Transformational Learning Opportunities (TLOs)

Friday, September 26, 2014
1:00pm-2:30pm

Location: Social Science Building 51, Room 1209


Cost: Free

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

Friday, October 03, 2014
1:00pm-2:30pm

Location: Founder’s Hall, Building 2 Room 2002


Cost: Free

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.
