Theory into Practice (TiPs)
In collaboration with the Crown Faculty Center, the staff of the Colket Center for Academic Excellence would like to introduce a new series of faculty resources we are calling Theory into Practice. Each block, we will introduce a new topic related to teaching and learning, offer a short summary of research on this topic, and suggest a few ways faculty might apply this research in the classroom.
