Upcoming Events at CAT

This semester at CAT, we are developing a program of workshops  designed around the theme of effective feedback. Building upon the success of  Faculty Development Day, we want to continue the conversation around effective feedback as a way of promoting student success. Our goal is to provide workshops and seminars of varying duration to accommodate a diverse range of participant interests and schedules.  Some workshops will meet just the once, while others will take a more sustained approach.  We understand that timing is a concern so we are looking to hold activities during the community hour as well as during the evening. Dates and times have not been finalized but we do hope you will find something of interest in our selection of workshops.
