Teaching Scholars Institute
A collection of teaching strategies introduced by teaching scholars from:
The Teaching Scholars Institute (TSI) was initiated from the Provost’s office at Murray State University. Teaching Scholars from Western Kentucky University, University of Tennessee at Martin, and Murray State University were nominated by their Deans for teaching effectiveness. The institute was centered around Chickering and Gamson’s Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education 1.
Special thanks to the Provosts at the respective universities for their support of this program.
The theme for the 2007 institute was the fourth principle, "Good practice gives prompt feedback." The fourth year's TSI event was hosted by Murray State University.
The theme for the 2006 institute was the third principle, "Good practice encourages active learning." The third year's TSI event was hosted by University of Tennessee at Martin.
The theme for the 2005 institute was the second principle, "Good practice develops reciprocity and cooperation among students." The second year's TSI event was hosted by Western Kentucky University.
This booklet on teaching effectiveness was produced by participants of the Teaching Scholars Institute 2004. The first principle, "Good practice encourages contact between students and faculty," was the theme of this first year of the institute. TSI 2004 was coordinated by the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology at Murray State University.
