Dr. Sherry Molock has been teaching psychology for three decades. Just as she remains current in her field of psychology, she wants to remain current in the field of teaching. Supporting her in testing and refining her teaching methods are the University Teaching and Learning Center (UTLC) and Academic Technologies (AT).
“We partner with professors who want to assess and improve their teaching,” said Dr. Patricia Dinneen, director of the UTLC. “It’s an ever-evolving field. We research and develop practices that support active, student-centered learning and foster student engagement.” Each year, the UTLC offers a weeklong Course Design Institute (CDI), exposing professors to active learning, and guiding them through the design of a new course or the redesign of an existing one.
