Below is just a list of Crown Faculty Center sponsored events including dates, times and places. I've described some of the topics we might cover for various kinds of sessions. We will send out reminders before each event with more specific information about topics, etc. At that point we need RSVPS!
I have NOT planned and programmed everything because I really would like to "crowd source" this a bit. What else should Crown offer as lunch time topics on teaching or for afternoon workshops for scholarship? Who do you think should present material or lead discussions about various topics? Please send me your thoughts, email@example.com. Thanks for your ideas.

Happy New Year!
This block's Engaged Teachingand Learning lunch will be a demonstration by the ATS team about the new features that Canvas (our new PROWL) will offer us. Several faculty tested it in classes last semester, and ATS will be working with all ofusas we SLOWLY move to a new and better system.
We hope you can join us on Tuesday, February 28 at 12:00 noon in Slocum Commons.
Please RSVP to Patti at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
Events for All Faculty
SCHOLARSHIP WRITING AND RESEARCH MORNINGS (yes, SWARMS)
At the suggestion of a faculty working group, the Crown Center will staff and provide coffee, light breakfast, and quiet in the Cossitt Commons or Learning Commons Living Room for the first two mornings or each block. Breakfast, coffee, chatting, goal setting from 8:30 to 9, then heads down and quiet work on scholarly projects in our own café-like setting from 9-11:30.
