Pinter Presents at Teaching Professor Conference

At the June 2016 Teaching Professor conference in Washington, D.C., Mike Pinter (director of Belmont’s Teaching Center and professor of mathematics) presented a poster session titled “Faculty Small Group Variations: Reading, Scholarship, Writing.”  The poster provided information about a range of Belmont faculty small groups, each of which has as its focus a common reading, scholarly projects and/or teaching and learning applications. The groups described in the poster included summer reading groups on a range of topics, applied teaching/learning groups that meet throughout a semester, reading groups that have a connection to faculty half-day retreats (using the Courage to Teach framework and process), faculty writing groups to support scholarly writing and faculty scholar cohorts that come together around a focal point of some kind.
