Wisconsin Teaching Fellows
2003 Summer Institute

June 22 – June 27, 2003
Pyle Center, Madison, WI

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. Working within the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning perspective which aims to understand teaching and student learning as scholarly work, we will collaborate to develop meaningful projects. We expect that you will come prepared to argue over the readings, play with new ideas, and help each other find creative approaches to teaching, learning, and career dilemmas.
