Lycoming College Teaching Effectiveness Program and Committee
2000 Junior Faculty Teaching Award recipient Holly Bendorf and student Sarah Hirst discuss a spectroscopy problem together
The Teaching Effectiveness Program at Lycoming College is designed to support and implement the following objectives:
Provide a collaborative and supportive environment for faculty interested in promoting quality teaching in undergraduate classrooms. This recognizes diversity in and acceptance of various teaching styles, and acknowledges that a supportive environment is one in which faculty are comfortable with experimentation in terms of teaching methods and are free to share failures as well as successes.
Develop and implement a series of formal teaching initiatives such as workshops on campus led by nationally recognized educators; attendance and presentations by Lycoming faculty at nationally recognized conferences on teaching; informal workshops and gatherings on campus in which Lycoming faculty share teaching initiatives; and the sharing of information about teaching through channels such as a newsletter, a Web site, a collection of teaching literature, etc.
