Faculty appointments: Lanter, Martin to take on new roles

We’d also like to congratulate a couple of faculty members who will take on new roles for the 2013-14 academic year. Associate Prof. Jennifer Lanter, Psychology and Human Development, will become director of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL), replacing Associate Prof. Aeron Haynie, Humanistic Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies. And Associate Prof. Ryan Martin, Human Development and Psychology, will become the new co-director of the UW-Green Bay Teaching Scholars Program. Martin will work with Associate Prof. David Voelker, Humanistic Studies. “I’m very much looking forward to the opportunity to further the development and delivery of programs and resources that foster excellence in teaching and learning here at UWGB,” Lanter said Friday. “I am excited by the chance to promote collaboration and partnerships among units and faculty across campus interested in excellence in teaching and learning, to help facilitate innovative and creative professional development activities, and to integrate some already solid programs on this campus (i.e., Teaching Scholars) with new initiatives designed to advance faculty development, teaching improvement, and curricular innovation at UWGB.” More information about both programs is available online.
