Promoting a Community of Learning

The mission of the collaborative is to foster the development of our faculty and staff as members of a community of engaged and effective educator-scholars, committed to excellence in student learning.

The goals of the collaborative are to:

  • Facilitate the exploration of educational strategies informed by evidence of student learning and scholarship
  • Facilitate communication and collaboration among faculty, staff and students in ways that enhance the intellectual growth of the University

Below, faculty and staff gathered for an inspirational message and updates from Mark Thompson, senior vice president for academic and student affairs, followed by workshops based on the Learning Paradigm in Action. Workshops explored the use of reflection in student advising, selection and training of Resident Assistants, the use of personal success plans in the freshman seminar, and How Learning Works.
