Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
The Scholarship of Teaching & Learning group is designed to connect a faculty member's teaching and or course design practices to research. Over the course of a semester, faculty members in this group will develop a research idea connected to teaching and learning, solidify the research project, and move the project through IRB approval in preparation of implementing the project. The group meets 1-2 times per month. If you are interested in being a part of the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning group, please contact Dr. Grady Roberts (email@example.com) or Natalie Coers (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Teacher's College was established in 2007 to enhance the teaching skills of newer CALS faculty members. Teacher's College also allows faculty to engage as a community of practice around learner-centered teaching.
Faculty are selected through a nomination process to participate in this semester-long course. The course is facilitated by a team of experienced CALS faculty who model effective teaching practices.
The topics to be addressed in the course include principles and practices utilized in the spectrum of responsibilities of teaching faculty, beginning from developing a teaching philosophy to designing effective assessments and reflecting on practice.
By the conclusion of the Teacher's College program, faculty are able to:
- List and explain the psychological principles that affect learning.
- Develop instructional objectives that are appropriate for an educational program.
- Develop a detailed instructional plan for an educational program.
- Develop an assessment procedure for an educational program or college course.
- Incorporate the use of instructional aids/technologies in the instructional process.
- Develop an evaluation procedure that reflects achievement of instructional objectives.
- Reflect upon teaching practice to improve student learning.
