Teaching & Scholarship
Faculty Research Symposium
University Teaching Fellows
Each year a cadre of Teaching Fellows is selected on the basis of proposals for projects designed to strengthen teaching and learning on campus. Successful proposals carry awards up to $2,000. Fellows are expected to share discoveries with their colleagues through planned dissemination activities and to model engaged teaching in the spirit of Chaucer’s clerk: “And gladly would he learn, and gladly teach.” In addition, Fellows are expected to take part in the Fall T&L Forum.
The 2012-13 Teaching Fellows:
• Andrew Battista (Carmichael Library), “Changing the Game: Badges and Assessment of Learning in the Classroom”
• Emily Gill (Theatre), “The Living Portfolio: Teaching Flexible and Adaptable Personal Archiving Skills for Aspiring Theatre Design Professionals”
• Jenifer Moore, Jennifer Alexou-Ray, Hollie Cost, Elizabeth Thrower, Almir Smajic, Jiji Lawley (Elementary and Secondary Education), “Real-Time Analysis and Assessment in Interactive Environments”
• Stephen Parker (Sociology), “Developing a ‘Sociology of Games’ Course”
• Michael Patton (Philosophy) and Michael Sterner (Math), “Self-Guided Learning in an Astronomy Course”
• Elizabeth Thrower (Elementary and Secondary Education), “Effectiveness of an Online versus Traditional Teaching Format: A Comparison of the Effectiveness of Teaching Strategies on Learning Outcomes”
Proposals reviewed by the Faculty Development Advisory Committee (FDAC) and endorsed by the VPAA.
