Proposal Abstract

Can faculty peers scaffold, motivate, encourage their colleagues to improve their classroom teaching or are faculty members on their own? This presentation will explore this question and the power of a course design academy to challenge and encourage change in teaching practices. The presenters will share results of an exploration into the ways two course design Academies impacted pedagogy, attitudes and reflective habits of academy attendees. Come prepared to be challenged to think about your practice from new perspectives. You will participate in a course mapping activity which may promote deep thinking about course organization and the power of Post-it notes to change your outlook on pedagogy.
