Reflective Teaching Project

A Grant from the Davis Educational Foundation

Project Overview

The overall goal of the Reflective Teaching Project is to facilitate meaningful thought and discussion among faculty about teaching and learning that will inspire appropriate change in curriculum and pedagogy.

In practice, the idea is to better enable the Office of Institutional Research to have an impact on the academic program by ...
(1) designing and conducting research on curriculum and pedagogy;
(2) designing and conducting research in conjunction with faculty at the level of the academic department or program or course; and
(3) undertaking meaningful assessment of learning outcomes in the liberal arts context.

The Reflective Teaching Project was funded for three years by the Davis Educational Foundation; 2003-04 through 2005-06.
