Faculty Engagement

We offer several evolving programs designed to foster the use of research-supported, technology-enhanced, teaching and learning methodologies.  Each one of our programs has its own criteria for entry. These programs address the needs of faculty as teachers and co-creators of knowledge, with a focus on evidence-based approaches to learning in higher education.  We also focus on developing campus scholarship around teaching and learning.  We invite faculty and instructional support staff to participate in these programs regardless of what point they are at in their career.

Research-to-Classroom Studio

As a world-renowned public research university, UW-Madison has a wealth of research, inquiry and professional practices. But how can undergraduates engage with those resources and experiences? Research-to-Classroom (R2C) Studio provides a forum for faculty and instructors to infuse their research processes directly into their undergraduate courses. Through short bursts of workshops and examples from colleagues, you will learn how to design and assess meaningful activities and assignments that bridge the gap between research and teaching.
