President's Teaching Scholars Program

 

 

Teaching Scholars' Projects in Teaching and Learning

* New* 2015 Call PTSP Call for Nominations

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

 

Since the inception of the program, the President’s Teaching Scholars on all campuses have been engaged in projects to enhance learning and interactive pedagogy. The scholars have also taken opportunities to mentor new faculty and early career faculty in their departments, schools, and colleges. The President's Teaching Scholars as scholars of teaching and learning and as scholarly teachers propose to enhance their project work to include faculty peers on their campuses. To that end, we offer the Project Gallery – one-page depictions of current projects; even projects that have been completed will evolve over time as refinements, fine grain judgments, and enhancements are made. We invite you to email the scholar whose project is being illustrated in the Project Gallery by clicking the PTSP Directory. The scholars wish to be involved with faculty peers in the broader intellectual issues of learning and teaching, thereby becoming a member of faculty learning community.
