UW - Green Bay Teaching Scholars
The Green Bay Teaching Scholars Program aligns with the goals of the UW - System Teaching Scholars to give faculty the opportunity to enhance teaching and learning through research, collaboration and reflection.
The main activity is the development of a teaching and learning project. Simply put, the project asks Scholars to identify a strategy that may successfully address a common teaching challenge. During the first semester, each Scholar identifies a teaching challenge. The Scholar then explores strategies that may successfully address the challenge. At the end of the first semester, Scholars refine their strategies and then employ them in a class in the second semester. Each Scholar evaluates how well the strategy worked, and presents his/her findings during a campus-wide presentation.
Teaching Scholars meet about once a month to discuss books and other readings about teaching and to talk about on-going projects. Meetings are informal, with lots of free-flowing conversation. Past participants have found the program to be an enjoyable experience, and have described it as a supportive environment filled with great conversation and wonderful guests.
