SUNY Potsdam Teaching Circles
A Teaching Circle is a small group of faculty members who meet regularly to talk about teaching and support each other in that regard.  Each Circle is formed using these criteria: (1) who is available at the same times, (2) the desirability of mixing recently hired faculty members with more veteran faculty members, and (3) the value that can be had from getting to know teachers in departments other than one’s own.  No circle will contain more than one person from the same department.  If interested, please sign-up on or before Friday February 2nd.
Date: Date and time to be determined based on your schedule during sign-up.
Location: CCI (Lougheed Learning Commons -106). *Sign-up required by 02-02-18 (click to Sign-up).
