The Decatur Writers Group would like to invite all interested students, faculty, staff and community members who share a love of writing to bring up to five double-spaced pages of their creative writings, at any stage of the writing process, to share with group members for critique.
The group will also host guests from the professional writing community to share relevant information on the journey from novice writer to published author.
October Meetings will be held on the 7th and 21st. In November, the group will convene on the 11th and 18th. The group meets in the Decatur Campus Learning and Tutoring Center, Room SF 1200 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on these dates. All meetings are free and open to the general public.
For more information about the Decatur Writers Group, please contact Constance Britt Whitehurst at 678-891-2579, or via email at email@example.com.
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning-Perimeter College will be hosting Faculty Development Days on two Friday mornings this semester. These days will provide an opportunity for faculty to share ideas about any teaching/learning strategies they’ve been using in the classroom. Faculty Development Days will compensate for the loss the centralized Faculty Development Day on the Clarkston campus (during those “student study days” we no longer see on our semester schedules).
The call for proposals seeks presentations about “engaging students, assessing student learning, e-learning/e-books, tying course materials to relevant life and educational experiences, motivating a diverse student body, etc.” You may submit a proposal HERE.
Proposals are due by 5pm on Sept. 27, 2016 for the Oct. 14th FDD, and Oct. 21, 2016 for the Nov. 11 FDD.
Currently, two events are planned and all faculty are welcome to attend either event. To register for these events please fill out the brief form
