UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The Evidence-Based Teaching Fellows Program supports faculty members as they systematically inquire into a particular area of interest or concern with respect to teaching and learning.
Each instructor will be asked to write up a brief literature review along with a plan for how they might incorporate some what they have learned into their classes the following academic year. The report will also need to address how the issue they researched might generally benefit under-represented students either in terms of retention and/or recruitment.
A coordinator will assist each participant in choosing readings and each meeting will focus around one participant's area of inquiry (with common reading for all). Discussions will be facilitated by the coordinator.
A member of the FASDB will serve in the role of Program Coordinator.
The Teaching subcommittee of Faculty and Instructional Academic Staff Professional Development Board will evaluate all proposals.
