Midwest Faculty Seminar Topics 2012-2013
The Midwest Faculty Seminar (MFS) involves faculty actively and collaboratively, with colleagues from across the disciplines, in discussions that immediately and directly address, not only matters of mutual interest, but also issues that profoundly affect teaching and learning. In so doing, the seminars afford faculty occasions for study and reflection and, also, for the sort of cross-disciplinary exchange that characterizes liberal arts education at its best.
Each year, Faculty Development is able to sponsor a small number of full-time faculty to attend the seminars. Faculty interested in attending one of the 2012-2013 seminars should email Faculty Development with a description (no more than one page, single-spaced) of how attendance at a specific seminar would affect your teaching and/or research. Applications should be emailed to Faculty Development by 4 p.m. on Friday, September 29, 2012. Priority is given to those full-time faculty who have never attended a Midwest Faculty Seminar in the past.
