Please consider answering the call to become a 2019-20 UW-Green Bay Teaching Scholar. The application is due Wednesday, May 1, 2019. The theme for the year will be “Transitions.” Think about the many ways that could apply to pedagogy! You might be thinking about first-year experiences and facilitating the move from high school to college or helping transfer students negotiate their transition to UW-Green Bay. What about people teaching capstones who help students as they move from college to the world of work? There are also faculty members’ own professional transitions, such as from early career to mid-career professional or from primarily face-to-face to online instruction. What are the ramifications of our own changes to teaching and learning, and how do we assess them? Do you have interest in a topic related to students, teachers, or learning that relates to transitions? Please consider applying to become a 2019-20 Teaching Scholar. Learn more.
