The TLCP is a program created for and led by DePaul faculty and instructional staff. If you have an idea for leading a session for the Teaching Commons Workshop Series, we encourage you to submit a proposal for an upcoming quarter. You can browse descriptions of past workshops to get an idea of recent topics and review the presenter guidelines to get a sense of what it would be like to lead a workshop.
Faculty and part-time staff presenters will receive an honorarium of $450 for designing an original workshop and facilitating two sessions (one at the Loop campus and one at Lincoln Park). If a pair presents, they will each receive $350. Those who design and facilitate an online workshop will receive an additional $50. Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to offer stipends to full-time staff members who lead workshops.
Proposal deadline for the 2017-2018 academic year: Friday, June 23 2017.
Proposal Review Process
Workshop proposals are reviewed by the TLCP Planning committee. Selection decisions are made based on the following criteria:
- The topic of the workshop relates to teaching and learning.
- The workshop topic is interdisciplinary, meaning that the title and description of the workshop is likely to appeal to a wide range of DePaul faculty and staff, and the proposal describes how the facilitator(s) will guide participants from various disciplines in thinking about how the workshop topic can be put into practice in their teaching context.
- Based on the description, outcomes, and activities, the workshop is likely to provide ideas, strategies, or techniques that participants can apply to their own teaching.
- The workshop outcomes are specific and achievable within the time available.
- The proposal describes structured, interactive learning activities that will account for at least half of the session time.
- The proposal incorporates research from at least two peer-reviewed sources, e.g. scholarly articles, books.
