President's Teaching Scholars Program

Examples of Proposals by Past PTLC Faculty Researchers

Like many faculty, you may be curious about aspects of your teaching, but you may be uncertain as to how to investigate the effectiveness. All of the proposals from previous PTLC projects are posted on the web. If you browse through these, you may gain ideas about how to formulate your project. You will also notice the variety of research projects the PTLC has supported. You can read all of the proposals of past cohorts on the PTLC website.

Examples of research projects:
• Curtis Smith inquired, "Would a comprehensive interactive ear training program increase creative production in college level computer music courses?"
• Kathy Pieplow sought to study the “transferability of genre analysis strategies across disciplines and into the workplace."
• Meredith Banasiak developed "a process for integrating research into the architecture design studio."
