Are you working on an article, conference or grant proposal, dissertation, book manuscript or other writing project that would benefit from two days of uninterrupted work this summer? Do you need a quiet space in which to write, gain the support of colleagues who are also writing, and receive feedback on your work?
If you'd like to make substantial progress on a writing project, register for the CCRI Writer’s Retreat sponsored by the Center for Innovative Teaching, Learning and Assessment (CITLA) Thursday, January 12, 2017.
Jeanne Mullaney, Assessment Coordinator and faculty in the Foreign Languages and Cultures Department, will facilitate the retreat, which runs from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.
CITLA will provide writing resources and goal-setting activities to keep you focused, as well as a laptop computer for your use.
CITLA will also ensure that you're well-hydrated and alert by providing beverages throughout the day and CCRI librarians will be able to assist you with research.
Participants are expected to spend at least six hours per day on writing or writing-related activities and join other participants for a brief morning meeting, lunch and a brief reflection session at the end of the day.

NEW Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
Faculty Learning Community Forming
Do you have questions about your teaching and student learning that you’d like to turn into research questions and hypotheses that can be answered empirically?
Would you like to work with a group of like-minded faculty who are also researching meaningful questions about their teaching and their students’ learning?
Members of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning faculty learning community will meet over the course of the spring 2016 semester, read articles on SoTL, attend at least 2 meetings, and participate in a workshop given by Dr. Michele DiPietro called “Moving your SoTL Project Forward”. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 from 8:30-4:00 on the URI Alton Jones Campus. In addition to participating in the meetings listed, faculty members will design a SoTL project, carry out the research, and publish the findings in a journal and/or present them at a conference.
To join this Faculty Learning Community, please click here and print the application. Please forward the completed application to Michele Quaedvlieg, Knight Campus Library by March 7, 2016. If you have any questions please contact Jeanne Mullaney at 825-2478.
