Collaboration: Have you visited the CETL Collaboration Room in 3-103AB lately? The Provost funded the renovation of the old classroom space directly across from the Faculty Senate Conference Room and many people frequent the space for coffee and collaboration. The Grand Opening was held in January 2012 as a “First Friday” event with refreshments provided by the Office of Multicultural Student Initiatives. This year, to continue the tradition, the EAU/KERN Foundation is funding refreshments. If you enjoy interdisciplinary conversation and positive ideas, please come to this First Friday event.
Innovation: Were you one of the 91 faculty members who attended the Entrepreneurship Across the University (EAU) workshops funded by the Kern Foundation in the past few years? Did you develop, pilot and assess your innovation tool in the classroom? Perhaps it has been wildly successful or perhaps you learned through failure. In any event, let’s gather informally (around the watering hole) to re-connect. Dr. Massoud Tavakoli will appreciate talking with you. If you are interested in sharing innovative classroom techniques, please come to this First Friday event.
Success: Did you know that Kettering University has earned accreditation bragging rights in many disciplines? Do you realize the amount of work that our faculty, staff and department heads in these departments have gone through to obtain these designations? If you are interested in celebrating and/or sharing your individual department successes, please come to this First Friday event.
After the First Friday celebration, we will continue our Brown Bag discussions
