TALE Faculty Institute

New Faculty Institute participants received professional development money they can apply to conference travel or the purchase of teaching-related materials; a certificate of participation for their portfolios; and Linda Nilson's book, "Teaching at its Best: A Research-Based Resource for College Instructors (3rd edition)." Contact Lisa M. Stallbaumer-Beishline, TALE director, for more information.

BU's New Faculty Institute was sponsored by TALE (Teaching and Learning Enhancement). The institute was a four-day workshop about effective teaching practices. Faculty learned about BU student demographics, syllabi design and content, general education, BOLT basics, bringing diversity to the classroom, and a variety of teaching techniques.

Current BU faculty were actively engaged in sharing their expertise in the workshops and during the Teaching Exchange, a poster session where multiple teaching strategies were shared.
