Policy Development


The Institute will help foster and lead an institution-wide discussion on the role of efforts at teaching and learning in the faculty review and reward processes. In order to promote initiatives in teaching and learning in a highly decentralized institution, the University will need to adopt coherent, effective policies that recognize and reward such activities by our faculty members. The Institute and its members will advocate for such policies, and provide leadership in developing models that academic units can adapt to their local needs. Such policy changes are needed for this overall teaching/learning initiative to be broad-based and sustainable.
