Events and Programs

Teaching, Research, and Technology Workshops
Every year before the beginning of the semester, the Center for Teaching, Research and Learning, in collaboration with the University Library, hosts the Teaching, Research, and Technology Workshop series, demonstrating new and innovative approaches to classroom teaching and research.

Faculty Learning Communities
Recent events on- and off-campus have reminded us of the vital importance of developing curricula and pedagogy that recognize and sustain the ways of knowing and the lived experiences of students from communities marginalized by systemic inequalities.

Faculty As Learners
This year, CTRL is launching the Faculty as Learners Series, which consists of faculty development workshops aimed at promoting reflexive practice and a productive teaching-learning environment for all.

Ann Ferren Conference
This one-day annual conference, held the Friday before spring classes begin, features interactive, faculty-led panel sessions on current and important topics related to teaching, research, and learning.

Noontime Conversations
The Center for Teaching, Research & Learning sponsors two or three conversational lunches per semester focused on topics of special interest to Faculty.

New Faculty Orientations
We welcome you to campus and the community. The orientations are designed to introduce you to various offices, services and opportunities to enhance your experience as an AU faculty member.

Greenberg PhD Seminars for Effective Teaching
The Greenberg Seminars for Effective Teaching is now a one-credit course, The Art of Teaching, that is offered each spring semester for PhD students who want to learn more about educational pedagogy. Designed as a complement to the PhD academic experience, the Greenberg PhD Seminars for Effective Teaching provide a hands-on, practical introduction to professional development and classroom techniques.

AU Entrée Program
AU Entrée is a program for new full-time faculty at AU, designed to support you during your first two years of teaching, and run by a seasoned number of the AU faculty. The program enables you to learn about best teaching practices from a spectrum of mentors and to network with peers.


CTRL is committed to providing services to all faculty and staff regardless of disability and we will coordinate ways to bring services to an accessible location. Request an accessible meeting (x3926).
