Achieving the Dream
Teaching and Learning
The Teaching and Learning focus area is comprised of administrators and faculty on campus who are committed to finding ways to engage students within the classroom environment. A major area of focus for these members is the topic of cooperative learning, which is a method of teaching that incorporates more student interdependence as well as personal accountability into the course curriculum. The Teaching and Learning focus area has also created a Teaching Excellence Academy which will offer the faculty a venue to share their successful cooperative learning strategies and new teaching techniques with one another in an effort to expose different academic areas on campus to a variety of best practices.
