Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

I hope that you made the most of your Labor Day weekend-I guess that means that summer is now officially over.  (Apologies to the Astronomers!)

If you haven't had a chance, please take a look at the ACTL survey: Supporting Your Teaching and Learning[1]. This is a short survey covering teaching-oriented and professional development. Information gathered from the survey will serve as a primary source of information as we plan programs for the school year; consequently it is very important that I hear from you! Many thanks to those that have already taken the ~5 minutes to fill it out!

I am very grateful to Meg Gillette for her help with the first ACTL workshop of the year:

Responding to Student Writing
Thursday Sept 10th
Olin 201

We hope that you will find this to be a timely and useful session. Bring your assignments and ideas!

You may also have noticed that this coincides with the Library's Celebration of Faculty Scholarship and Teaching. They have chosen "Responding to Student Writing" as their theme for the celebration this year and are soliciting narratives about your teaching innovations. Please consider contributing; the deadline is Monday, September 28.

Make the most of this short week and please, if you haven't already, fill out the survey! Hope to see you Thursday.
