The User Education Committee invites you to our first of what are planned to be twice/semester gatherings: The Teaching Toss. We'll meet in Library 428 on November 18, 12n-1p. Our theme this time is active learning.
And, what is The Teaching Toss? It's open discussion on teaching and a salad-buffet potluck rolled into one! Sort of like a brown bag but instead we'll share our ingredients and ideas to create two great mixes - intellectually and culinary. The Office of Information Literacy (a.k.a. Lisa) will provide lettuce and other salad basics - you bring one salad topping (e.g., croutons, shredded cheese, cut-up veggies) and your best ideas on the theme. The User Education Committee's Active Learning Working Group has some information to share but we'll also be opening this up to everyone for ideas.
Why are we doing this? Well, because you asked us too! We've had many requests for discussions and opportunities to share with each other. We thought this would be a fun alternative to the brown bag. So, bring your salad contribution and willingness to share great ideas!
