Making Learning Visible
Dr. Magen and Prof. Periman outlined activities of the "Making Learning Visible" Project for the upcoming academic year. The goal of this project is to provide resources and a supportive community of colleagues to faculty as they strive to self-evaluate and improve their teaching skills.
Activities for faculty include a series of sessions centered on the book, Inquiry into the College Classroom: A Journey Toward Scholarly Teaching, and working groups to assist faculty in developing a web-based portfolio for public dissemination and for inclusion in their faculty review file, that documents efforts to improve teaching and student learning.
