Subject: [AllFaculty-list] Spring Faculty Development Opportunities

Welcome back everyone!  I hope your break was restful and rejuvenating.   As we start into the spring semester I wanted to let you know about some faculty development opportunities.

Writing Space. Last semester we began dedicated writing space for faculty to gather and work on their individual writing projects.  That experiment proved very successful and we are doing it again this semester. There will be a Friday morning group from 9-12 and a Friday afternoon group from 1-4.  Participants are expected to come every Friday during their preferred time from January 18- April 26.  Please let me know if you would like to participate in either group.

Koru Training.  We have had a lot of interest in the Koru training that is coming up in May.  There are still spaces left in the training, but you must take a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course prior to the May training in order to participate.  You can do this through an online training or you can do it through a class.  The Provost’s Office is willing to pay for the completion of these prerequisite courses.  Please see the Provost’s Office website for more information https://provost.richmond.edu/academic-initiatives/mindfulness.html

Rhonda Magee Lecture.  As part of the mindfulness initiative we have invited Rhonda Magee<https://www.usfca.edu/law/faculty/rhonda-magee> to UR.  She will be speaking on “Mindfulness and Revolutionary Equity: teaching, learning and practicing the inner work of racial and social justice” at a public event on February 4 from 5:30-6:30 pm at Ukrop Auditorium.  Professor Magee is a specialist in mindful legal practice at the University of San Francisco and a fellow of the Mind and Life Institute.  Please consider attending this event and encouraging your students to do so.

Faculty Office Hours.  I will again have Faculty Office Hours every Tuesday morning from 9-11 in my office at the International Center, Rm 343.  Feel free to come by and speak with me about any concerns or ideas you might have.

Program on Academic Leadership.  We will be sending out the call for nominations and applications for the 2019/20 Program on Academic Leadership at the end of this month.  The program is designed to inform and equip faculty members for leadership at all levels of the University.  This first year of PAL has been a wonderful experience in terms of both learning and community building.  If you want to know more about the program take a look at the Provost’s website<https://provost.richmond.edu/faculty-development/Program%20on%20Academic%20Leadership.html> or talk to one of the participants.

We will also have another cohort on inclusive pedagogy in the 2019/20 academic year.  I will send another e-mail about that at a later date.
