Faculty Interest Groups Present

FIGsOn Thursday, April 27, the Belmont Teaching Center hosted a lunch discussion featuring three faculty interest groups, each of which has developed community, collaboration, and scholarly activity among faculty.  Mitch McCoy and Abbie DeBlasis spoke about a faculty interest group that grew out of experiences during their New Faculty Orientation. Sally Barton Arwood, Kate McGowan, and Ryan Fox discussed ways in which their faculty group uses a process called “Critical Friends” to improve pedagogy.  Finally, Hope Campbell, Cheryl Slay Carr, and Edgar Diaz-Cruz reported on a recently formed faculty interest group that meets, discusses, and studies concerns of minority faculty.
