The University's Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education is beginning its second year of operation, and faculty members in all areas are encouraged to apply to become institute fellows.
ITUE promotes reform of undergraduate education through faculty development and course design. The summer sessions of the institute are designed to help faculty learn how to transform classrooms of students into communities of learners through the use of teaching technology and active learning techniques.
Applications are particularly welcome from those teaching introductory and general education courses and those teaching integrated or interdisciplinary courses.
Applications from faculty teams representing departments undergoing curriculum revision or faculty team-teaching multiple sections of a large course also are strongly encouraged.
