Wisconsin Teaching Fellows
2001 Summer Institute

June 24 – June 29, 2001
Pyle Center, Madison, WI

Agenda

Summer Institute is designed to provide an opportunity for intensive discussion and inquiry into teaching and learning. We will work together to understand our teaching/learning histories and possibilities, the worlds of our students, and early-career faculty dilemmas. We will collaborate to develop meaningful projects within the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning perspective, which aims to understand, explain, and value teaching and student learning as scholarly work. We expect that you will come prepared to argue over the readings, play with new ideas, and collaborate to suggest creative approaches to teaching, learning, and career dilemmas.
