Engaged Teaching and Learning Committee

Guiding Questions

  • How can we make the most of all the time our students spend with us?
  • What are the next steps as our faculty continue to move from oracle to mentor?
  • How can we do more to support faculty and students as they pursue scholarship and research?
  • Considering our aspirations for engaged teaching, participatory learning, and more collaborative scholarship, what forms of technology should we acquire and support?
  • How can we help students and faculty do more to expand the lesson of the liberal arts to life questions and career development?
  • What do these changes mean for the physical campus?
