Master teachers excel in using technology
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences administrators have named six faculty
as "master teachers" this year. The college started the master teacher
program a year ago when it recognized teachers who excelled at teaching
large classes. The six in this year's group were selected for their
innovative use of technology in teaching. They are: David Stuart, music; Tom
Ingebritsen, zoology and genetics; Doug Yarger, geology and atmospheric
sciences; Rebecca Burnett, English; Steffen Schmidt, political science; and
Bob Stephenson, statistics.
In cooperation with the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), the six will
lead a faculty forum discussion in February. Each faculty member also will
lead a workshop this semester on his or her technological specialty.
The faculty forum and dinner will be held Tuesday, Feb. 20, in the Memorial
Union Campanile Room. Dinner begins at 6 p.m., with discussion following at
6:45 p.m. The forum will be repeated from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb.
21, in the Campanile Room. Bring your own lunch. The CTE will provide
beverages and dessert.
