What I learned at Faculty College:
There are a lot of interesting people teaching in Wisconsin. And by interesting I don't necessarily mean it as a good thing. Man! Universities are liberal places.
I learned that I don't have a clue what the humanities people are talking about.
I learned that I don't have a clue what the social scientists are talking about.
I learned that there are educational psychologists. They are interesting to talk to.
I learned that there is a lady in Wisconsin studying horse breeds in Cuba. She is a woman studies professor.
I learned that historians are goofy. Well, some of them :-) In a good way, too.
I learned that getting my cheesemaker's license fascinated people.
I learned that UW-Richland Center was once Wisconsin State University Platteville...not sure of that history but I am totally curious (EEEK...I have been married to a history buff for too long :-) )
I learned that even a group of faculty will act like a group of students: there are those that say nothing, those that raise their hands, and those that talk and never stop.
Overall it was fun and I think that we already are teaching in our signature pedagogy quite well. I might even find room for a publication in the area of SoTL someday (if I can figure out what it means!).
