Teaching Retreat

Ready to renew and re-energize your teaching? Each fall semester, CTE brings together a small group of mid-career faculty for a weekend retreat at the Marconi Conference Center, about 50 miles north of San Francisco on the beautiful Tomales Bay.

We’ll spend the weekend rethinking our courses and honing pedagogical techniques. In previous retreats, we have focused on student learning, student engagement, and integrated course design. The retreat agenda will include short presentations and discussions, activity-based sessions, individual work time, and reflection. And of course, we’ll convene for delicious meals presented by Chef Joanne Fusco. The agenda has built-in flexibility; participants will be able to plan a schedule according to their own needs and interests.

Full-time members who have worked at USF for five or more years and part-time faculty members who have taught at least 80 units are eligible to attend the retreat.

Applications open in August.

Please Note: Some regularly scheduled CTE programs have been altered, cancelled or postponed because of COVID-19 restrictions. Please refer to the CTE newsletter or contact us for the most up-to-date information.
