New Adjunct Faculty Welcome: Co-constructing a Learning Community

Join other new UMBC adjuncts, faculty, and staff for a workshop designed to help you create successful teaching, learning, and assessment experiences for yourself and your students. Since course climate is vital to student success, first we explore our audiences and ourselves–Who are UMBC students overall? Who are the specific learners in your classrooms? How can we share who we are and co-construct a learning community with our students? How can we connect to the wide range of resources that UMBC offers? Next we discuss how to deepen this community connection: creating choices, cultivating competency, and connecting students’ work in your course to their own goals and dreams engages students through intrinsic motivation.

The FDCs collaborative programs, resources, and services are designed to support your introduction to teaching or reinvigorate you as you continue to refine your teaching. All faculty are invited to join us to welcome our new adjuncts, join the discussion, and contribute to community building.
