Center for Learning and Teaching (Frank Hassebrock, Director)
How are the students doing in your courses? We are entering the middle part of the semester. Many faculty conduct formative evaluations of learning and teaching around that period of time. Although these evaluations are not required at Denison, their informal and constructive nature can help both students and faculty make decisions about what is being learned and what can be changed in the remaining weeks of the semester to improve student learning and teaching effectiveness.
Gilpatrick Center Notes
We are pleased to announce that Denison has been named a “Top Producer of Fulbright Students” for the current Fulbright class. Hopefully we will repeat this success next year with our 9 semi-finalists! We also have a Truman finalist who will be going for her interview in April. We thank faculty for all the work you do to help steer our talented students to the Gilpatrick Center and ask that you will continue to do so.
