Join us on Friday, September 8 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Office of Academic Innovation space in the Hatcher Graduate Library (8th floor of Hatcher South) for an informational coffee hour to check in prior to submitting your U-M Teach Out Series Proposal.
“There is no shortage of problems that would benefit from the academic excellence and remarkable breadth of the University of Michigan faculty. During this, our bicentennial year, two of my major priorities as president are to enhance the ability of our faculty to contribute to public understanding of critical issues and to share our expertise in a more conspicuous, and public, manner. One opportunity to achieve both is through our new U-M Teach-Out Series, which leverages academic innovation to reimagine public engagement for the century ahead, Michigan’s third century. Efforts like these will advance our mission as a public university by better connecting U-M’s broad intellectual power to areas of society where research and understanding can make a difference in lives and communities. The more we can use our work and expertise to influence decision-makers at all levels, the better our world will be.” – President Mark S. Schlissel
This information session is intended for instructors and instructional teams who are interested in designing and developing a Teach-Out.
Attendees will have an opportunity to share their ideas, learn more about the logistics of facilitating a Teach-Out and network with fellow interested instructors. Academic Innovation staff and previous Teach-Out facilitators will be available to offer recommendations and answer questions.
What are your ideas for content and format? Are you looking for collaborators? Do you have questions regarding the proposal or facilitation process? We look forward to connecting with you, and we are excited to help create the next round of Michigan Teach-Outs!
Bagels and coffee will be provided.
