PTI 2019 Application
Thank you for your interest in the Performance Training for Instructors professional development course!
This form is an application to take part in the 2019-2020 session of Performance Training for Instructors (PTI). Given space limitations, the participant pool is limited to 15 faculty members. Please submit your application by midnight on August 8th. We will respond to applications shortly after that date.
PTI consists of a series of workshops introducing faculty to skills and approaches from the visual and performing arts, and from communication that strengthen instruction and create a more positive classroom culture. During Fall 2019, we will meet for six workshops (in addition to an introductory check-in and a final debrief session). During Spring 2020, faculty will apply the skills they have learned to their classroom environments, supported by monthly meetings. The aim of the program is not only to provide skills training, but also to create a community of teaching faculty. To this end, attendance at all or most of the sessions is strongly encouraged.
The cost of the program is $250, however tuition waivers are available for faculty without access to professional development funds.
if you have any questions, please reach out to Dr. Jen Moon <
