Enabling a Culture of Change: A Life Science Faculty Learning Community Promotes Scientific Teaching
Sirum, Karen L.; Madigan, Dan; Kilionsky, Daniel J.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v38 n3 p38-44 Jan 2009
Significant challenges to education transformation in lecture-oriented science departments include initiating and supporting a dialogue about teaching and learning among faculty whose priorities are primarily research. The authors established a faculty learning community through which participants made significant changes to how they think about student learning and how they approach teaching. (Contains 6 tables.)
