The University of Kansas (KU)

Post-doctoral experts (Teaching Fellows) infuse knowledge, reflective practice, and practical support in seven departments (Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Film & Media, Geology, Math, Physics, and Psychology) and the School of Engineering (Civil, Environmental, and Architectual Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Aerospace Engineering; Chemical and Petroleum Engineering; and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science). 

The Teaching Fellows build communities of engaged faculty, staff, and students within departments by providing training opportunities for instructors on how to utilize undergraduate teaching assistants in the classroom, leading reading and discussion groups, and presenting on department-level course redesign efforts.   

Individuals from across campus meet monthly at the C21 Consortium to share ideas and work together on course redesign efforts.  Campus work is evidenced at an annual poster session highlighting course redesign efforts across campus, Teaching Fellow semester reports documenting the impact of course redesign on student learning, and repositories of learning modules to sustain department work.
