Rena Seltzer’s The Coach’s Guide for Women Professors is a practical guide both for women—whether contingent faculty, tenure-stream faculty, or administrators—and for men who are supervising women in academe. Women often encounter unique barriers in academe and often carry heavier loads of service and care responsibilities than their male colleagues. This book offers succinct advice on how women faculty can prioritize the demands of their lives, negotiate better, create support networks, and move their careers forward.
In this three-session Learning Community facilitated by Jacquelyn Miller (Center for Faculty Development) during winter quarter, we'll work our way through the chapters of the book so that we can determine whether and how Seltzer’s advice can lead women faculty to a more sane and joyful life.
Over the three sessions, you'll learn how to:
This community is primarily for any faculty member who is interested in learning about the challenges that women face in academic and how to overcome them.

Are you looking for new ways to get your students engaged in class discussions, to make sure that everyone gets heard, and to keep the conversation energized without going off-topic? If so this faculty learning community may be just what you are looking for. In their recent book, Stephen Brookfield and Stephen Preskill acknowledge and unpack the various ways that discussions often fail. They then offer 50 techniques to set up successful discussions depending on the setting. For every technique the authors cover: how it works; when and where it works well; what users appreciate; and what to watch out for.
This Learning Community will be facilitated by the Center for Faculty Development and the Center for Digital Learning & Innovation. During each session we will test out at least two of the techniques in the book and make notes about what worked and what didn’t. Between sessions we will also explore how those same techniques work when translated into online formats.
During these sessions, we’ll explore techniques—both in class and online—that:
This community is for any faculty member who is interested in learning how to improve their discussions either in the classroom, online, or both. Consider joining us If you would like to explore quick and easy techniques to get students talking, keep them focused on the topic, and fully engaged.
The Discussion Book is 260 pages long and covers 50 discussion strategies. We will focus on two strategies each session.

Are you confused about when to say "yes" and "no" to other people's requests? Do you often say "yes" to requests without realizing the impact that response will have on your time and productivity? Do you find yourself feeling angry and resentful during the academic year because you've said "yes" too often?
You're not alone! Many faculty (pre-tenure, post-tenure, and non-tenure-track) find it incredibly difficult to sort out when, why, and how to say "NO." In this tele-workshop, you will learn:

Many of us at SU already use discussion as a key component of our classes, not only to ensure our students’ grasp of a topic, but also to invite new perspectives to enrich understanding. An often overlooked element of class discussion – one that has little to do with what is said – is instrumental and necessary for fostering respectful and rich dialogue among students: Listening.
Most people listen with the intent to reply. What if we instead taught and modeled for our students the power of listening to understand?
Active listening is an effective, powerful, and inconspicuous pedagogical tool for deepening discussion, yet it can be deceptively difficult to put into practice.
In this lunchtime workshop, we will explore:
