For two decades, Our Turn has provided peer-directed training in a variety of academic and skill areas for RU faculty and staff.
Coordinated by the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) and the Office of Faculty Development, August Our Turn is celebrating its 20th anniversary of discussing best teaching practices, providing essential training opportunities and offering insights into new campus initiatives.
August Our Turn runs from Wednesday, Aug. 14 – Friday., Aug.16 at sites across campus. A full schedule of course offerings and registration is available at the CITL training and development website.
For the August 2013 sessions, among the forty Our Turn offerings are:
- Work-Life Balance: Overcoming Stress to Find Joy, Peace, and Balance in a Busy World, facilitated by Alan Forrest. Balance is good and necessary for overall emotional health and well-being. However, the dichotomy between life and work requires greater clarification and exploration.
- First Look at the New MyRU Portal, facilitated by Jackie McNabb. A reimagined MyRU portal this fall will be unveiled that offers streamlined access to campus resources and a one-stop shop for the business functions of Radford University.
- What's New in D2L 10.1, facilitated by Lisa McDaniel, Charley Cosmato and Judy Hurst. Over the summer, D2L was upgraded and now includes exciting enhancements and new features.
