About CFCD

Welcome to CFCD

The Center for Faculty and Curricular Development (CFCD) offers programs and support for faculty at all stages in their teaching and professional development. It provides a convivial venue for faculty-initiated discussion of a wide range of topics and issues. Regular programming includes Lightning Lunches (noon discussions in the faculty dining room), a series of events designed specifically for new and junior faculty, publishing panels, open classrooms, teaching roundtables, and summer workshops.

In addition to events during the semester and summer, CFCD offers support for faculty in the form of  drop-in hours, one-on-one consultations, and classroom observations. Drop-in hours are offered by CFCD Fellows Emily McLaughlin and Adhaar Desai on Fridays, 10:00-11:30, in Hegeman 201. Want to brainstorm about an assignment you are designing or a class plan you are developing? Have a question about support for research or some other area of faculty work and life? Drop-in hours are a chance to talk and think through these and other issues with a colleague. CFCD Co-Directors Deirdre d’Albertis and Philip Pardi are also available for one-on-one consultations (email to set up a time). Classroom observations can be arranged either with a peer (we’ll set you up with someone who also wants to be observed) or with someone from CFCD. Feel free to contact us for more information.
