The Faculty Interested in Teaching group at NC State was created by a collaboration between DELTA and the Office of Faculty Development (OFD) to facilitate discussion amongst faculty, especially those in their first few years, about teaching and learning in higher education. We will be holding monthly face to face discussions on the third Friday of the Spring Semester from 1–2 p.m. We encourage you to join our listserv to keep up to date on topics and events and join us for our next event!

Active Learning Strategies
Interested in engaging students in the learning process? That is what Active Learning Strategies are all about! Join us for our ONLINE discussion about ways to incorporate active learning strategies in your face-to-face or online classroom. We will also discuss how choosing to use active learning strategies impacts your preparation and role as the teacher, as well as your students. We strongly encourage you to have a working microphone to join us in this discussion!
Students of Concern
Facilitated by Doug James
September 8, 2017
Noon – 1 p.m.
NC State has a diverse student body. When you teach, you realize students are people with academic, social and emotional challenges. Issues often surface with both individual students and classroom management. What if a student is in distress or crisis? What student issues do you struggle handling? What resources exist for students? How do you decide what to address and when to refer to others? Join us to discuss these issues vital to effective teaching.
Teaching with Technology
Facilitated by Bethany Smith
September 22, 2017
Noon – 1 p.m.
There are many different technological tools that are available for teaching face-to-face classes and online, but which ones work for you and your teaching style? In this session, we will discuss tools that group members are already using, areas of instruction that you would like to match with a tool and best practices for integrating technology effectively in your classroom
