Best Teaching at U of the Sciences
Faculty at the University of the Sciences are excellent teachers who constantly strive to improve their teaching, share their innovations and even do research to improve their teaching. For example:
- Overall 77% of the full time faculty participated in at least one, voluntary faculty development activity during the year.
- 40% different full time or adjunct faculty presented their ideas about teaching to other faculty on campus. Some made many presentations.
- 18 USciences faculty made 13 presentations at two peer –reviewed and competitive conferences (The Teaching Professor and the Lilly-East Conference) dedicated to teaching and learning in higher education. At one of these conferences, out of 35 peer-reviewed presentations, three (08%) of them were made by USciences faculty. Competition was especially keen to present at this conference as there were 240 submissions.
All of this adds up to dedicated teachers who foster student learning. That is why I am proud of the faculty at the U of the Sciences.
