TLC Virtual Writers Retreat

Are you working on an article, conference or grant proposal, dissertation, book manuscript or other writing project that would benefit from devoted time of uninterrupted work this summer? Our goal is to provide a welcoming space for faculty to carve out time to write and share progress with supportive colleagues virtually.

If you'd benefit from the accountability that a group provides for structuring your writing process, we'd love for you to join us! Apply to participate in TLC's Virtual Writers' Retreat by Friday, May 22.

The Writer's Retreat will take place from Monday, June 1 to Wednesday, June 3. Check-ins will take place at 9am and 3pm during the three-day retreat to discuss progress and next steps. By signing up, you are committing to the check-ins on all three days.

2019-2020 Theme

Embracing diversity, inclusiveness, and respect for all, CCRI’s Teaching and Learning Collaborative (TLC) is proud to present its 2019 – 2020 theme: Building Community.

Join us in our quest to build a greater sense of community in the classroom, among colleagues, across CCRI and beyond, through professional development opportunities created by, with, and for CCRI faculty. As in the past, our goal is to support efforts to enhance the effectiveness of our teaching and the depth of our students' learning.

Mindful of the crucial role education plays in providing opportunity for all, we strive to do our part in bringing about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of the Beloved Community.
