The Digital Liberal Arts team is delighted to invite all faculty and staff to our semi-annual Pedagogy Lab on August 31st, 2016, 1PM – 5PM at Wardman Library. In the past, these labs have been fruitful meetings organized around the interests of attendants, so we hope you’ll join us for an afternoon of informal discussion about teaching, experimental pedagogy, and peer workshopping. Please keep an eye on this post for updates and helpful links!

  • Assessing Pedagogies with Susana Santos and Gary Whisenand

Many thanks to Laura McEnaney, Associate Dean of Faculty Development, who will be generously be providing snacks and caffeine!

A Note on Childcare:

Our colleagues who have children are sometimes unable to attend faculty development events because they do not have childcare.  Through funds provided by the office of the Associate Dean for Faculty Development, you can get reimbursed for childcare costs incurred during your attendance at this workshop. Please contact Laura McEnaney (extension 4933 or lmcenaney@whittier.edu), Associate Dean for Faculty Development, for more details about this option.


RSVPs are encouraged, though not required. If you can, do email Anne to let us know if you plan on attending so we can plan to have enough snacks on hand, and tell us if there are specific things you’d like to discuss during the pedagogy lab.
