This retreat is for faculty in higher education. It is based on the philosophy that well facilitated shoptalk is the
highest form of professional development. No individual "expert" can match
the collective knowledge, wisdom, creativity, expertise, and genius of 30-40
teachers who are actively involved in their profession. The participants
themselves are the experts at the retreat! You will meet with other
teachers from different disciplines and institutions, engage in highly
interactive discussions, share successful strategies and innovations, seek
solutions to your own teaching problems and challenges, and much
more (see instructions for Prior Preparation about what to bring to the retreat).
Thursday-Saturday, February 26-28, 2015
Days Inn, Kanab, Utah
Retreat begins with Orientation meeting and light refreshments at 7 p.m. on Thursday; ends with lunch on Saturday.
Travel Information for Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat (click link for travel details)
The retreat facilitators will provide structure and
guidelines to help assure effective use of retreat time, but you and the
other participants will decide which issues are most important and relevant
to discuss. Together, we will pursue a quest for the ideal of the "great
teacher." The Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat is
based on the seminar model of the National Great Teachers Movement,* founded in 1969 by
David Gottshall. This movement continues to grow with workshops, retreats, and
seminars held across the United States, Canada, and other parts of the world.

At the Red Rock Great Teaching Retreat, we
will have great food, great conversation, and even some free
time for a little fun in the beautiful red-rock country of southern Utah.
You may decide to extend your stay over the weekend so that you can spend more
time in the area, perhaps visiting a national park. Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and the north
rim of the Grand Canyon are nearby.
We hope you will join us for this
professionally enriching and rejuvenating experience.
