August 15, 2013: Wisconsin Teaching Fellows & Scholars Program Assessment Project, by David Voelker and Ryan Martin
August 15, 2013
Spring 2013: WTFS welcomes this year's Co-Directors: Cyndi Kernahan and David Voelker!
This program targets and connects outstanding early-career and later-career teachers. It is exceptional in several respects: its systemwide approach and impact; the diversity of disciplines and institutions represented in each year’s group of participants; and its development of communities of teacher-scholars within and across institutions. These communities multiply the impact on student learning at each UW System institution.
Each participant completes a year-long teaching/learning project, with dissemination of results as an essential part of the process. They then serve as a model and mentor in their discipline and on their campus, leading efforts to advance the practice of teaching through scholarly inquiry into student learning.
Application information is available from the Provost's office at each UW institution.
