ThinkAchieve: Connecting the Classroom and the Community
This program is designed to engage faculty members who are master teachers to work with a
cohort of faculty for one year on a teaching and learning topic that meets the goal of ThinkAchieve: Creating Connections to improve students' critical thinking. Faculty members are integral players in promoting student critical thinking skills through the implementation of innovative classroom and experiential activities that promote active learning. To stimulate this process, the ThinkAchieve Faculty Fellows program will provide an opportunity for cohorts of faculty to learn from Faculty Fellows Leaders through a one-year program that involves a workshop, meetings through the academic year, and a group campus presentation on their teaching and learning topic related to critical thinking.
Faculty Fellows Leaders will be selected through a competitive application process. Once selected, Leaders will announce their cohort topics and descriptions, and interested faculty will apply to participate in January, 2013. A broad representation from the Colleges will be a priority in the selection process for both Leaders and Cohort Participants.
Faculty Fellows Leaders will provide a transformative experience for their Cohort Participants, starting with an initial ½ day workshop in May 2013. This workshop will be followed by at least three meetings of the cohort during each semester of the 2013-14 academic year. Each Faculty Fellows cohort will give a campus-wide presentation about their work in April or May of 2014. Compensation will be provided for both Leaders and Cohort Participants (see guidelines for details).
