Featured Pew FTLC Grant

Kate Remlinger, Kelly Ross, and Dawn Evans created a Teaching Circle to learn how to more effectively encourage student responsibility and accountability so that students are well prepared for class discussions and activities. The group will learn and share pedagogical practices such as designing classroom activities and assignments that develop cognitive skills, make connections with previous knowledge (i.e. "scaffold"), and develop metacognitive practices while at the same time helping faculty manage assignment and grading loads. Much of the group's learning will come from the book and website, Just-in-time Teaching by Scott Simkins and Mark Maier and include Pew FTLC on-demand workshops.

 
Promoting a scholarly approach to teaching and learning, 
supporting reflection on professional practice, encouraging 
growth at all career stages, and rewarding innovation in teaching.
