Retreats: Building and Maintaining the Teaching Community

Fall and Winter Retreats

Open to all! Early in each semester, the Teaching Academy invites the campus community to gather for a morning of conversations on a relevant theme in higher education teaching and learning. These topics help to prepare instructors and faculty for another successful year with undergraduate students and allow campus educators to discuss new updates in undergraduate education. If you are interested in helping to plan or facilitate the next Fall or Winter Retreat, please contact dan.pell@wisc.edu.

  • The Fall Retreat celebrates Fall in Madison by gathering for a morning of conversations on a relevant theme in higher education teaching and learning.
