This retreat is for college and university faculty. It is based on the philosophy that well facilitated shoptalk is one of the highest forms of professional development. No individual "expert" can match the collective knowledge, experience, wisdom, creativity, and genius of 30-40 teachers who are actively involved in their profession.
This summer marks the 27th year of our professional (and personal) development program for college teachers. Teachers from all types of higher learning institutions and from a variety of disciplines will gather in South-Central Virginia during June 25-June 29, 2017 for an exchange of learning, teaching, and philosophy. The focus of discussion and activities for the entire week will be on innovations and problems of instruction in undergraduate education. The sole mission of The Virginia Master Teacher Seminar is improvement in classroom and on-line instruction.
