2018 Retreat

30th Annual Retreat

May 18-20 at Fourwinds Marina and Resort, Bloomington, IN

As FACET celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018, we were excited to reflect on three decades of changes and continuing challenges in teaching and learning at the annual retreat. 

Bernice Pescosolido, member of FACET's inaugural class, and Sue Sciame-Giesecke (Class of 1991), co-chaired the Retreat Planning committee. Natalia Rybas, who helped spearhead the inaugural FACET Academy Awards with Lee Kahan and Kyoko Takanashi, returned as a co-chair to help carry the FACET Academy Awards into its second year. 

We hope you enjoyed connecting with fellow members, from the inaugural FACET class (1989) to our new inductees and all members in between, as we discussed issues and concerns over time in higher education ranging from teaching and learning in specific courses to pedagogical challenges of engagement to political struggles in and about higher education.
