CELT and colleagues in Teaching, Learning, and Academic Innovation are eager to help our teaching community at UK. With critical support from UK PR, we have launched the Teach Anywhere website to provide a central hub for resources, tutorials, and practices related to the sudden shift to online and alternate delivery formats.
As the nominations for the 2020 Outstanding Teaching Awards are submitted this month to The Office for Faculty Advancement, I sat down with Benjamin Braun, associate mathematics professor, who was a recipient of the award in 2019. In our interview, Ben discussed the benefits of engineering a classroom environment where learning (and failure) are public, allowing all students a chance to find their strengths and build resilience in academic settings.
Every year, The Office for Faculty Advancement, with support from CELT, awards faculty and graduate teaching assistants for outstanding teaching. These individuals are recognized for their powerful impact within their classrooms and dedication to innovative pedagogy. As the nominations for the 2020 awards are submitted this month, I sat down with Dr. Jennifer Osterhage, professor of Biology, who was a 2019 recipient of the award.
