Essays, Studies, and Works
The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust funded a three-year grant to provide 120 UNI Liberal Arts Core (LAC) faculty the opportunity to participate in specialized institutes focused on enhancing teaching and learning in the LAC. These "Carver Institutes" have ranged in topics from the utilization of specialized software, to integrating disciplines, to the incorporation of critical reading and writing strategies across the LAC courses taught by the participating faculty. The Institutes have met several objectives related to the use of innovative instructional strategies, educational technology, active learning and undergraduate research, collaborative teaming, and the creation of enduring interdisciplinary cultures. Overall, the Institutes have been very successful bringing together faculty with common teaching goals and interests around which they can begin to form collaborative teaching/learning communities.
