Brad Love is the PTF Ambassador to the Academy of Distinguished Teachers, and was the 2018 Chair of the Provost's Teaching Fellows.
Brad's PTF initiative assesses several career-skills activities targeted at preparing students for life after their baccalaureate degrees. In partnership with experts in the Vick Center for Strategic Advising and the College of Education, the project gathers data over two years to study the effectiveness of ongoing efforts to build personal development skills relevant to thriving post-graduation, such as self-awareness, positive coping, and self-efficacy, among others. Phase 1 focused on project and measurement design. The ongoing Phase 2 involves testing the survey and interview tools before the ongoing data collection kicks off.
