PROJECT LEA/RN
Member of the project since August 2008

Description: The purpose of LEA/RN Leadership Development is to respond to the growing interest among faculty in student-centered learning, by preparing a core set of faculty members to lead faculty development.

Participants in LEA/RN Leadership Development will:
use effective group facilitation skills;
demonstrate knowledge and practice of effective teaching skills;
enhance student learning, particularly in 100/200 level courses;
initiate cross-departmental/-college curriculum development; and
form a cadre of faculty to provide assistance to others.

Within an environment that incorporates research-based components of effective faculty development, participants will explore pedagogical and learning theories and their implications for effective teaching. LEA/RN Leadership Development maximizes facultye xpertise to achieve the strategic goals to improve the quality of undergraduate education inherent in the strategic plans of the University, colleges, and departments, and establishes a university-wide network to support continued improvement.
