The Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) has appointed two Social Science faculty members to key roles within a new program focused on enhancing student learning and achievement. The GLCA has named Dr. Thomas Ludwig, John Dirk Werkman Professor of Psychology, and Dr. Scott VanderStoep, Professor of Psychology and Chairperson of the Department (along with Dr. Joanne Stewart, Professor of Chemistry) as GLCA Teagle Pedagogy Fellows.
20 Fellows were chosen through a selective process of nomination and application. They are distinguished not just by their knowledge of research on human learning and pedagogical technique, but also by their strong interest in working with faculty colleagues within and across GLCA member colleges to enhance liberal arts teaching and learning.
Teagle Pedagogy Fellows will have key roles in the development of a new consortial program, called the GLCA Lattice for Pedagogical Research and Practice, created with funding from the Teagle Foundation. The Fellows will engage with interested faculty members on their own campuses and at other GLCA colleges, helping to generate heightened interest and momentum in exploring different modes of pedagogy to enhance student learning and achievement.
