Faculty Innovation Showcase - November 2015
The vision of the PTF program is to have broad, positive, and sustained impact on the quality of teaching across the campus through the identification and support of talented, forward-thinking, and service-oriented faculty. The First Annual Faculty Innovation Showcase celebrated the accomplishments of our first cohort of Teaching Fellows’ innovative initiatives. Each Teaching Fellow adopted an evidence-based approach to teaching/learning through a specific educational initiative. This venue provided them with the opportunity to share the insights gained with the broader academic community within the university. View Program
