The University of Wisconsin is teaching its undergraduate professors to teach.
Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, many college professors are subject matter experts, but have little to no teacher training experience. The University of Wisconsin is attempting to solve for this by incorporating educational research and teacher training into its graduate programs in the hopes of improve undergraduate teaching at research universities.
The takeaway? This is one of those “how were we not already doing this!” moments, but kudos to the University of Wisconsin for working to solve this incredibly important problem, and may we all follow likewise.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
