2020 FACET Retreat

Due to COVID-19, in order to protect our community, guests at the retreat, families, and our home communities, we will have a year-long retreat experience beginning September 11 with a keynote webinar tentatively to be presented by author Scott Barry Kaufman. Please stay tuned for further updates.

September 11, 2020 - Keynote Details TBA


 Creativity and Experience: Enriching Teaching and Learning

In academia, many of us think of creativity as something that applies only to the arts. However, as teachers we actively participate in the creative process whenever we develop curricula, step into a classroom, or even engage with students online. In fashioning experiences using our own inventiveness, we help guide students to become creative and reflective thinkers. At the same time that we foster intellectual growth, we also enrich their lives, both now and in the future.

In designing, running, and evaluating the experiences we fashion for our students, we utilize a variety of creative practices and habits of mind.

Following the keynote, we will engage in a series of events throughout the academic year including inducting new members. More details coming later. Ultimately we do plan to hold the retreat next May.
