The Senior Teaching Fellows Program
Jackson, William K.; Simpson, Ronald D.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of the Senior Teaching Fellows Program, in which senior professors at the University of Georgia worked to improve instruction in lower division courses. A total of 24 senior faculty members participated in the program (eight in each of three years). The participating professors were involved in both group and individual activities related to improving instruction. Twice a month the Fellows met for discussion of an instructional topic. Each Fellow also undertook an individual instructional improvement project focused on the improvement of a specific undergraduate course or course sequence. As a result of the project the Senior Teaching Fellows have emerged as an influential group providing instructional leadership, and the program is being continued with institutional funding. Individual sections of the report provide a project overview and describe the project's purpose, background and origins, specific activities (such as a yearly 2-day retreat and an academic affairs symposium), results (in terms of four broad goals), and conclusions. Appendices include the program brochure, introductory material of the symposium proceedings, and a list of published references to the project. (DB)
