On Thursday, September 14, the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship hosted a luncheon for faculty new to Georgetown University. CNDLS staff offered one-on-one time, and the gathering served as an opportunity for incoming faculty to meet colleagues in other departments, and get to know CNDLS programs.
CNDLS’ Executive Director Eddie Maloney and Senior Director of Faculty Initiatives Maggie Debelius kicked things off by introducing CNDLS, and faculty from a variety of departments connected with several CNDLS staff over lunch.
