Crown 3rd Thursdays Faculty Luncheon Series

UPDATE: No Crown Faculty Luncheons will be held in-person for the remainder of the academic year.

Join us the third Thursday of each block to discuss topics pertinent to faculty over lunch. Lunch will be served by noon, with programming beginning at 12:15 p.m. We understand that many of us will be coming from class and some may need to leave closer to 1 p.m. Please come for whatever part you can.

In support of our new General Education Program, and in conjunction with the CEC, the Spring Semester Crown Faculty Luncheons will be devoted to key elements of our new program.  Each Block’s Crown Luncheon, Thursdays of Week 3, will be paired with an early-afternoon Friday workshop the following day. We welcome participation at either of these events on their own – or certainly invite faculty to attend both together. We know that time is precious and also that these times will not work for all. We are working to have some materials available on a shared space.

Block 5: Frameworks for Creative Process Blocks

Lunch: Thursday, Feb. 6, 12 - 1:15 p.m., Tutt Library Event Space
Have you considered offering a Creative Process block?  Maybe you teach a course that has a strong creative element but are not sure about how that translates into a Creative Process course.  Or maybe you’d like to dream up something entirely new under this designation.  While aligning a course with the creativity designation may seem daunting, many courses already contain elements that can be built upon to fulfill the requirement. This session will address some ways to frame creative process in a block course and provide support for proposing CP courses.  Led by Jane Hilberry and Kris Stanec.
