The Scholarship and Evaluation of Teaching
All faculty are invited and encouraged to attend the campus-wide meeting to discuss topics related to non-traditional teaching which could include invited presentations/lectures, seminars, workshops, short courses, demonstrations, etc. The meeting will take place on Thursday, September 4, 2014, at the Hunter Henry Center at 2:00 p.m.
Dr. Blannie Bowen will deliver a keynote talk which will be followed by a discussion led by a faculty panel. Dr. Bowen serves as Vice Provost at Penn State with an academic appointment in Agricultural and Extension Education. He is considered an expert on evaluating teaching in the context of Extension.
The discussion panel will consist of distinguished faculty members from across the university: Dr. Jim Dunne, Dr. Randy Follett, Dr. Linda Morse, Dr. Michael Newman, and Ms. Amanda Powers.
We are hoping that this will be a first step in better understanding the significance of teaching that is done outside the traditional classroom setting.
Dr. Jerry Gilbert, Provost and Executive Vice President
