Small Group Instructional Feedback

Facilitated by Dr. Stephanie Sisk-Hilton

Small Group Instructional Feedback is a formative, mid-course check-in process to gather information about student learning experience to inform faculty's pedagogical decisions. You will work with a small group of colleagues from different departments to gather and share information about student experience in a confidential, non-evaluative process. The SGIF process is designed to be a valuable tool to examine and enhance your teaching, and it is intentionally separate from official peer observation processes that may be part of departmental retention, tenure, and promotion.

Please find registration form in link above.

Spring 2024 Transforms CEETL Faculty Writing Meet-Ups

Co-Facilitated by Dr. Jessica Adams-Grigorieff

Come! Join fellow faculty in structured, dedicated and quiet writing time.

SF State Transforms and CEETL will host weekly faculty writing meet-ups during the Spring 2024 semester. Sessions will provide opportunities for faculty to check-in about their writing and ample time to quietly work on individual writing projects. This writing meet-up is part of Transforms and CEETL’s continued efforts to create greater faculty scholarship on campus.  

The Transforms-CEETL Writing Meet-Ups are scheduled for every 1st and 3rd Tuesday from 1-3pm and every 2nd and 4th Friday from 1-3pm. Tuesday sessions will be hybrid; join virtually or come in person to the University Library. Friday sessions are virtual.  

CEETL Discussion Circles

Equity Priority 5 Faculty Learning Community

Facilitated by Dr. Anoshua Chaudhuri

To support departments teaching multi-section first year courses, CEETL continues to support with funding and a faculty learning community that meets once a month. The purpose is to create a community of teaching practice across campus to support all faculty teaching and learning and student success. Equity Priority 5 Program Leads meet on the second Friday of each month from 9.30am-11am.

Data informed Transformation Teaching and Learning Community 

Facilitated by Dr. Anoshua Chaudhuri & Dr. Ron Marzke

In this community of practice, a faculty cohort of CEETL Equity Fellows will learn about data-informed teaching towards building a just and equitable classroom. Faculty will learn about various data sources and what to do with the data to create inclusive classrooms. They will share experiences and strategies to explain or critique the evidence and be the leaders who can inform and influence campus policy.

Abolitionist Teaching and Learning Community 

Facilitated by Dr. Kasturi Ray 

Abolitionist Teaching (AT) is a non-punitive pedagogy drawn from Black feminist activism and scholarship on carcerality, community, intersectionality, and Black joy in the face of the "educational survival complex" (Bettina L. Love [2023] Punished for Dreaming: How School Reform Harms Black Children and How We Heal). 

During the first three weeks of this course, we will consider problems such as absenteeism, achievement gaps, and reform through the Abolitionist Teaching frameworks of mattering, aspirations, and relationality instead. In our final week, we will have a public forum to discuss our findings; and launch a larger discussion about best practices in the use of AT on our campus. 

This is a 15-hour, discussion-based online learning community with both synchronous discussion and asynchronous Canvas activities. It runs from February 2-March 15 2024. Our online meetings are on Fridays 10am-12pm: Feb 2; Feb 9; Feb 16; Mar 8.

Course is currently full.
