Teaching Tales


In “Teaching Tales,” our final celebration for the Year of the Teacher series of events, we premiered and discussed videos of stellar Seattle University teachers from across campus. We heard them talking about the art and science of teaching to inspire us all in our vital work as educators.

Professional journeys: The Trek and its Meaning


In 2014, The Center for Faculty Development in collaboration with Dr. Bob Conyne, the 2013-14 Boeing-William A. Allen Endowed Chair and Distinguished Professor in the College of Education, filmed interviews with six full professors from different schools and colleges across Seattle University (Vicky Minderhout, Maggie Chon, Steen Halling, Greg Magnan, Anne Hirsch, and Jeffrey Anderson) about their professional journeys and from these interviews, created three short video clips which you can view below.

Clip 1: Experiencing your professional journey (length: 12:12)

Clip 2: Your work style (length: 10:36)

Clip 3: What advice would you offer? (length: 12:51)
