At work, I'm planning our next More Thoughtful Teaching Symposium (MTT). MTT is a three-hour event, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and includes a catered lunch. The symposia are usually well-attended (75-100 people), take various forms, and are themed. I've opted for--surprise!--a theme related to fear and anxiety. I hope to have an intro talk by some campus mental health experts (specialists on both student and faculty wellness), followed by some birds-of-a-feather discussion around themed tables.
But I want,--nay, need!--your help in theming those tables. If you teach (or have ever taught), especially in higher ed, please help me out by visiting this blog entry and leaving a comment. Bonus: You get to see a really dorky video of me as I make my videoblogging debut.
