Marking the launch of the CEU Teaching Development Grants Program
Research suggests that university teaching can be an intellectually intriguing activity in which analysis of dissonant observations can yield increased understanding and spark development and innovation.
This seminar is an "appetizer" for ambitious academic teachers intrigued by the prospect of investigating and innovating in their own courses and classrooms, and it marks the launch of the CEU Teaching Development Grants Program.
