Dine & Discover
Here's a great three-course combination: teaching topics that matter to you, lively interaction with peer and topic experts, and a free lunch to boot. From best practices for engaging your students in the learning process and better utilizing technology in the classroom, to evidence-based strategies for overcoming challenges in the classroom and beyond, Dine and Discover sessions are some of the most popular and practical professional development opportunities available to UofL faculty.
