Our Faculty Institute Days offer professional development related to teaching and learning for all Brescia instructors, including contract faculty and instructional staff.
Registration is now open for the Fall 2022 Brescia Faculty Institute (BFI), taking place on Thursday, November 3rd (9:30 am – 3:00 pm) in the MSJ Auditorium.
Lissette Ochoa, Coordinator of International Programs and Global Education and Special Advisor to the President, Diversity and Inclusion, and her team will lead our morning workshop, What’s in a Name? Names can have powerful cultural significance, and the correct pronunciation of our students’ names increases engagement, makes them feel recognized, welcomed, and included, and helps to build community. Have you considered how powerful it would be to learn to correctly pronounce the names of diverse student populations? Join us, as we come together to learn the cultural significance of and correct pronunciation of diverse student names.
During the afternoon we will continue the conversations about the role of the Competencies in Brescia's strategic vision, communicating the Competencies to our students, and the continuing evolution of the Brescia Competencies.
Light refreshments will be available in the morning and afternoon; lunch will not be provided.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more. Registered participants will receive further details closer to the date.
