Since 2003, Back to the Bay has been bringing faculty together to share their expertise, and learn from other campus experts, about a range of topics of interest to faculty in their roles as teachers, advisers, researchers, users of technology, and active participants in the campus community. This year's Back to the Bay will offer a variety of workshops on pedagogy, research, governance, and teaching with technology in the university's state-of-the-art facilities.
