A Message From Academic Affairs

Celebration of Faculty Scholarship and Teaching Event

Telling the Augustana story should include celebrating the scholarship and teaching pedagogy of our faculty. In that light, an event has been scheduled for the seventh week of the fall term in the Thomas Tredway Library to feature faculty scholarship and teaching contributions. The library will display examples of faculty scholarship and teaching pedagogy for the entirety of week seven. We will end with a reception/presentation on Friday, October 10 from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. Two faculty will be invited to present, one on their research and another on a topic of teaching and learning. A call will go out later this week, requesting materials for the celebration.

All faculty will be invited to submit recent publications, presentations, performances that reflect their academic scholarship. This will include books, articles, programs, catalogues, recordings, etc. completed in the last two years. We will also ask faculty to submit examples of effective classroom pedagogy around 3 or 4 specific topics to be announced within the call. Our goal is to illustrate how faculty from different disciplines approach ideas on teaching and learning.

We do hope you will consider participating in the event and celebrating your achievements. Stay tuned for the call!
