OFD Newsletter: Week of October 14, 2019

New Programming: Grading Retreats

Does the thought of end-of-the semester grading make you cringe? A quiet space, group support, and refreshments may help with that. The Office of Faculty Development has partnered with NC State University Libraries to offer Grading Retreats at the end of fall and spring semesters for all NC State faculty: Monday, December 16, 2019 and Monday, May 4, 2020. Retreats will be held in the Faculty Research Commons in James B. Hunt Jr. Library (Centennial Campus). Join your peers and motivate each other to get the job done! OFD staff will be on hand for any consultation desired to help make the job less onerous. Coffee/tea/water and a light breakfast will be provided. Registration is for the full-day event (8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.), but please feel free to come and go as needed — join us all day, in the morning, in the afternoon, or even just for an hour or two! Space will be limited for each retreat, so please sign up early if interested at go.ncsu.edu/gradingretreat.
