For Everyone

Brown Bag Conversations with the Principal

Twice a year, the Principal leads a discussion about some aspect of teaching at Queen’s.

Course Design @ Queen's

These workshops ranging in length integrate large and small group activities with opportunities for individuals to design a course. Large group activities include presentations of major concepts in course design, and cases illustrating their application in real courses. Small multi-disciplinary groups focus on the design of particular courses and microteaching. A principled approach to course design is supported by self-critique and peer feedback. These activities provide the opportunity to learn about different strategies for teaching, and to experiment with them in a non-threatening and supportive environment.

Cross-Faculty Teaching Forum

The Cross-Faculty Teaching Forum has been engaged in university-wide faculty development at Queen's since 1985.  This broadly-based group of faculty has organized a regular conference on teaching and learning issues, bringing to the campus interesting and gifted presenters, and offering participants an opportunity to learn about and discuss important issues in teaching and learning.
