Making Learning VisibleDr. 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.
