The Fall Composition Faculty Summit was held on August 28, 2017. Our writing faculty had the opportunity to hear from representatives from CTAL, The Center for Teaching and Learning, as well as Lauren Wallis from Morris Library. The powerpoint presentations that accompanied their talks are included below.
CTAL offers resources and support to all teachers at UD, including events that encourage discussions about teaching and learning. Remaining events this semester include:
- Friday Roundtables, on October 6th and November 3rd at 3:30pm in 208 Gore hall;
- TA Teaching and Learning Conversations, on October 9th and November 13th at 12:30pm in the Faculty Commons (116 Pearson Hall);
- Teaching Freshmen series, on September 27th and October 11th at 12:00pm in the Faculty Commons (116 Pearson Hall).
Lauren Wallis, First Year Experience and Student Success Librarian, asked how we can support emerging student researchers. She described ways to connect library instruction to class instruction, in order to make sessions with research librarians more productive for students.

If you have questions about how library instruction could fit into your English 110 course, or if you would like to set up an session with a research librarian, contact Lauren Wallis at email@example.com.
