Best Practices Institute

Award Name: 
Best Practices Institute
Award Description: 
BPI is a collegial, hands-on seminar especially useful for teachers who would like to reflect on and learn to represent their teaching. BPI is a good first experience for interacting with colleagues about course design. In the BPI, you’ll focus on one thing you want to change about one of your courses. You’ll work in small groups with teachers from various disciplines, as well as with colleagues who’ve successfully implemented changes in their teaching. By the end of BPI, you will have a plan in place and will be ready to implement the course change you want to make next year, and you will be ready to document the results of your teaching project.
