Engaged and Inspired Teaching
8th Annual Celebration of Teaching Excellence at Cornell
Monday, January 22, 2018 | 423 ILR Conference Center, King-Shaw Hall

The new Center for Teaching Innovation invites you to “save the date” for a day designed to inspire and prepare you for the semester ahead. The day combines seminars facilitated by Cornell faculty, lunchtime conversations with some of Cornell's most dedicated teachers, and opportunities for individual consultations about your teaching questions. All united by a focus on how teaching can inspire our students to, in the words of President Pollack, a "lifetime of discovery, a passion for ideas, and a commitment to seeking the truth."


All sessions will be held in the ILR Conference Center, King-Shaw Hall, Room 423.
CTI staff will be available to consult with you after each workshop on “just-in-time” class planning. Please bring your Cornell ID for registration and be automatically entered in the social hour raffle drawing. You must be present to win.
