New Faculty Institute breakfast on March 25

Submitted by Tamara Bauer

The New Faculty Institute will host a breakfast from 8:15-9:20 a.m. Monday, March 25, in 201 Leadership Studies Building. The topic is "Being and becoming a college teacher: Exploring professional identity development."

Start your day off well by joining the New Faculty Institute for coffee and breakfast catered by Powercat Sports Grill. After meeting colleagues across campus, this workshop creates a space for reflection and discussion around our identities as teachers at K-State. Kerry Priest, associate professor of educational leadership in the Staley School of Leadership Studies, will share insights from her own research on professional identity development of educators, and introduce several reflective tools and activities to help increase awareness of self as an educator, develop a sense of professional purpose and passion, and form stronger connections to our community of practice.

RSVP no later than noon Thursday, March 21.

The New Faculty Institute is a universitywide program sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Center to introduce newly hired faculty to K-State's missions of teaching, research and service, and to facilitate their success at the university.
