Announcing UW-Green Bay’s Teaching Scholars for 2011-12

Co-directors of the Teaching Scholars Program, Profs. Aeron Haynie and Angela Bauer-Dantoin, have selected the UW-Green Bay Teaching Scholars for the 2011-2012 academic year. These scholars were chosen on the basis of their teaching excellence and their projects’ potential to impact student learning across campus. Below is a brief description of their teaching projects:

Gaurav Bansal (Business Administration) will investigate best practices for teaching first-generation college students.

Franklin Chen (Chemistry, NAS) is working on ways to incorporate more math (calculus and partial differential equations) into his Physical Chemistry courses.

Amanda Nelson (Human Biology) is working on implementing webcasts of key concepts into her Anatomy and Physiology course.

Alma Rodriguez Estrada (NAS) plans to develop new collaborative learning techniques for her Conservation of Natural Resources course.

Melissa Schnurr (Human Development) will compare hybrid and face-to-face formats for her Infancy and Early-Childhood course.

David Voelker (History and Humanistic Studies) will assess a new web-based class preparation assignment that aims to “guide students to prepare more thoroughly for class.”

Jennifer Zapf (Human Development and Psychology) and Adolfo Garcia (Communication, CIS) will work on a joint, interdisciplinary project to measure the effectiveness of “reciprocal learning.”

Commented Haynie and Bauer-Dantoin in a joint statement: “We’re very excited to have such a broad representation across disciplines and look forward to a productive collaboration between tenured and pre-tenured faculty.”
