2013 Making Learning Visible: Implementation, Impact
| Teaching university-level courses is a form of serious intellectual
work that can be as challenging and demanding as discovery research.
When teaching is undertaken as a form of inquiry into the impact a
course has on student understanding, the quality and depth of this work
can be revealed through writing that reflects the relation between the
process of teaching and its results.
Daniel Bernstein, University of Kansas
|The Making Learning Visible inquiry project development series offers faculty the opportunity to produce evidence of teaching effectiveness that goes beyond IDEA survey results. Findings can be used as evidence of scholarly teaching in promotion and tenure reviews. Five mandatory sessions this fall will take faculty through the process of creating and implementing a classroom inquiry plan with an additional optional consultation available on the final meeting date. Faculty will place a course inquiry project documenting the inquiry on a CAFE maintained website to share with UAA colleagues and beyond. http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/cafe/portfolios/index.cfm|
We know your time is valuable and want to reward committed faculty who are willing to take the time to investigate and share effective teaching practices with their colleagues. Faculty who complete the process (see below) will receive a new iPad mini. Participation is limited.
