Spring 2004 Advisory Group

The membership of the spring 2004 Advisory Group did not change from what it was in fall 2003. Faculty members representing both colleges of the University, including both divisions of the College of Pharmacy and 16 of the 19 departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, participated in the Center's Advisory Group.

Perhaps most noteworthy is the work begun by a subset of volunteer members of the Advisory Group (and a few members of the Administration and Center staff) to draft a new strategic plan for the Center for the Advancement of Teaching. After an initial meeting in November 2003, this group, affectionately referred to as the Center's Strategic Planning and Implementation Group or SPIG, began meeting in earnest in February 2004. For information about the work of this group, including minutes of its meetings and the first public draft of the Center's new mission-program-values document, see

Finally, and similarly noteworthy, several members of the Center's Advisory Group led workshops for faculty in the spring 2004 semester. Workshop topics included:

  • "Do You 'See' What I 'See'? The Role of Immediacy in Enhancing Student Learning and Overall Educational Experience"
  • "Don't Throw Away That Test! Turning Old Exams Into Classroom Discussions"
  • "Beyond Lecture: Maintaining a Learning Environment in a Content-Heavy Course"
  • "Am I Getting an A? Assessment and Grading"
