Description

In an effort to help faculty get to know colleagues from across campus, at January Day after lunch we will try something new and different…we call it Expanding Horizons in keeping with the theme from the Distinguished Faculty lectures. As the university grows, getting to know colleagues outside of our normal work orbit is challenging and essential. To begin, experienced faculty will be paired with newer colleagues. They will have about 7 or 8 minutes to introduce themselves and get to know one another. At the end of the designated time, we will ask participants to rotate and the only “rule” is that we will ask participants to seek out colleagues they do not know, or at least do not know well. After 7 or 8 minutes, we will ask people to seek out another unknown colleague. Yes, this is similar to speed dating, but as some of you know, this is a common activity used at professional gatherings as well. Robin Robinson and members of her ETO team will have a station so you may also use the time to learn more about the services offered by their office. The CELTSS Programming Sub-committee hopes that in addition to getting to know our colleagues better, this will lead to productive discussions and academic collaboration that we might not otherwise have had. The activity will take about 30 minutes.
