Pinter Presents at Teaching Professor Conference

Mike Pinter

Mike PinterAt 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.
