IUP Center for Teaching Excellence Reflective Practice Project

A Campuswide Effort to Promote More Effective Teaching

The IUP Center for Teaching Excellence has sponsored an effort to promote effective teaching through the use of workshops, monthly meetings, and small “teaching circles.” This program, called the Reflective Practice (RP) Project, was initially designed as a follow-up to the SSHE Summer Academy of 1993. The following information presents the history of the project, the evolution of the small group teaching circles, faculty assessment of the impact of the project, the workshops and monthly meeting topics, and our plans for the future.
