Central to the work of the Collaborative is creating and publishing scholarship in teaching and learning that contributes both to theory and effective teaching practice in and across disciplines. To this end, each Faculty Researcher designs and undertakes an investigation aimed at deepening understanding of disciplinary pedagogy and related to an important issue in learning.
Faculty from all disciplines are invited to become investigators in CU's President's Teaching and Learning Collaborative (PTLC), now beginning its eighth year and establishing its 2013-14 cohort of Faculty Researchers. Faculty Researchers design, carry out, and publish research on a particular aspect of learning in a specific course. Each investigator is supported by a Coach and short seminars in how to do education research. Faculty researchers will receive funding totaling $1,550 for their research that may include a student research assistant and presenting one’s research.
All application materials must be submitted electronically in attached Word documents only to Suzanne.Eyerman@Colorado.EDU between Dec. 4, 2012, and May 22, 2013.
