All Day Shemini Atzeret (Multi-Day Event)
Jewish holyday begins at sundown the evening before: Shemini Atzeret (the Eighth Day of Assembly) immediately follows the harvest festival of Sukkot, and marks the beginning of the rainy season. Numbers 29:35 instructs: "On the eighth day you should hold a solemn gathering; you shall not work at your occupation."[i] In Israel, Shemini Atzeret is one day, but in the Diaspora it is often two days; Simchat Torah is either celebrated on the same day, or on the second day.
All Day Madrid Campus: Campus Closed - Spanish National Holiday
Campus Closed - Spanish National Holiday -- Dia de la Hispanidad
All Day Simchat Torah

Jewish holyday begins at sundown the evening before: After the festival of Sukkot, which commemorates when the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years and G-d gave Moses the Torah, Simchat Torah (Rejoicing in the Law) marks the end of the annual cycle of Torah readings. The Torah scrolls are taken from the Ark and carried in a procession, with singing and dancing, around the synagogue seven times, to celebrate the way Jews incorporate the Torah into their lives. The last book of D’varim (Deuteronomy) is read followed by the first book of B'reishit (Genesis), starting the cycle of Torah reading again.[i]

12:00 AM Midterm Feedback Sessions

Ever wish you could ask your students, in-semester, how things are going? Now you can with a mid-term feedback session coordinated by CTSE.

Upon your request, we'll schedule a time to visit your classroom to ask your students to give feedback on your teaching methods and their ability to learn in your class. Here are some of the questions we'll ask your students during the visit:

  1. What are the strengths of the course and the instructor that assist you in learning?
  2. What things are making it more difficult for you to learn and what suggestions do you have for improvement?
  3. What might you do personally to improve your learning in the course?
The student responses will be gathered into a confidential report. Once it's ready, we'll discuss the results with you and discuss ideas for improvement based on what they had to say. Research has shown that faculty members who conduct mid-course feedback and have a consultation raise their end-of-semester evaluations and improve learning.

Request for a feedback session by filling out this form.
12:00 AM Online Course Design Institute
Faculty are invited to participate in the 4-week Online Course Design Institute. The OCDI is recommended for faculty who are preparing to teach an online course, interested in learning about developing an online course, or who may already be teaching an online course but would like to incorporate some additional online teaching and learning strategies. This interactive, online workshop has been redesigned to align with the research-based Quality Matters rubric. The OCDI runs Sep 18 - Oct 13.

Confronting Crisis: The Practice of Immigration Law in the Age of President Trump

Since the first days of the new administration, immigration policy has been a focus of attention. Changes to admissions policies, enforcement priorities and deferred action have made daily headlines and caused widespread panic in immigrant communities. Professor Shah will discuss those changes in historical context and the ways in which they have changed the work of immigration lawyers including the student attorneys in the Immigration Clinic. She will also discuss how these changes have impacted people and institutions and what these impacts mean about the significance of the immigrant population to our national economy.
