Innovations in Teaching Using Technology Grant - Due June 30th

2022 Summer Book Club

The Faculty Center is sponsoring a Summer Book Club. This year’s book is The Flourishing Teacher: Vocational Renewal for a Sacred Profession by Christina Bieber Lake
About the Book: (from the website) Teaching is a sacred profession to which you have been called. But sometimes you feel burned out: the relentless pace, the overload of classes, the grading, the advising, the additional committee work. 

Read the book at your leisure this June and July, and then we will meet together as a group to share and discuss your thoughts in August. 

Six discussion group meeting dates will be offered, five in person and one virtually. You need only attend one, as they will be similar. We will discuss the entire book, so be sure that you have finished the book by the time of your meeting date.

Free copies of the book may be available to those who sign up with this form and commit to attending one of the discussion group meetings. Supplies are limited, and this is first come, first served. If you did not get a free copy, you may order the book on a Kindle (or similar), purchase the book on your own, or borrow it from your local library, and still attend our discussion group.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Natalie Kautz, Assistant Director of the Faculty Center, kautzn@rowan.edu, 856-256-4669.  


 ***IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction***

Spring 2022 is the last semester to use the Student Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness in Banner. 

We have moved to IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction for student evaluations which was adopted by Rowan in Fall 2020. 

New to the IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction?

This slideshow, IDEA Student Ratings of Instructions, gives an overview of the tool.

Please check out our Frequently Asked Questions about the IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction document and/or enroll in the self-paced Canvas training course, IDEA SRI Course Evaluation Training, for more information.
