Tom Morton, lecturer of history of architecture and urbanism in the History of Art and Architecture department, and Tahirah Walker, manager of Teaching Support at the Teaching Center, developed and led a "Walkshop" on April 2 with the purpose of helping instructors consider opportunities to incorporate the physical space of our campus into their learning activities. The University Times followed along and captured the experience in a new feature article. The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team joined as well and captured the event.
We’d like to congratulate Cressida Magaro (instructional technologist, LMS Support and Consulting), Brittany Page (media producer, Academic Digital Media), and Bobby Ackerman (manager, LMS Support and Consulting) for earning the Teaching Center’s 2018 Advancing Educational Excellence award! The annual honor recognizes Teaching Center staff members who exemplify the values of the center, demonstrate a positive attitude and commit to responsibilities, and make above-and-beyond contributions to the University. Congratulations on a successful year and thank you for your exceptional dedication to the center!
