Faculty Development Days – Call for Proposals

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

  • Friday, Oct. 14, 2016 at Dunwoody Campus at 9am-2pm
  • Friday, November 11, 2016 at Decatur Campus at 9am-2pm

To register for these events please fill out the brief form HERE to attend FDD on Dunwoody campus, Oct. 14 and/or Register HERE to attend FDD on Decatur campus, Nov. 11.

STEAM, not STEM! Call for proposals.

The Georgia State University, Perimeter College’s popular STEM Talks series will begin soon with a new letter added to include the Arts! The new STEAM Talks hosts are requesting proposals for lectures that will bring “awareness to the multitude of ways Art is connected to and involved in traditional STEM fields” which encompasses not only the visual arts but also music, film, and literature.

Existing talks or lectures in this area are welcome and you don’t have to have any prior STEM knowledge to be an effective presenter. All talks will be recorded through Blackboard Collaborate. The talks are typically 40 – 50 minutes long.

With as little as 2-3 weeks notice, your presentation can typically be scheduled on your home campus in the early afternoon. Although at least 2-3 weeks notice is required, additional time is beneficial to provide for sufficient publicity. Your proposed talk will likely be able to take place on your home campus (usually in the early afternoon to avoid travel during rush hour) and all you would do is give your talk in a classroom using the classroom computer and projection system like you normally do while teaching.
