Recognizing the synergistic potential for research collaborations between urban & regional planning and public health, Dr. Joan Wesley and Dr. Sophia Leggett developed collaborative research-based assignments for graduate students in their respective departments. Dr. Joan Wesley, the 2016 JSU Teacher of the Year, outlines the elements of these multi-year and multi-course collaborations including the learning and research outcomes for faculty and students. (Recorded on January 24, 2017)

 

Prof. Vershun McClain walks participants through designing, implementing and revising online courses. Based on her thoughtful and innovative teaching, Dr. McClain was chosen by her dean to represent the College of Business in the Teaching Tuesdays Faculty Spotlight.

In a world where everyone is a photographer and images are quickly made and quickly forgotten, how do we help students cultivate their observation skills, discernment and appreciation for craft? Prof. Mark Geil discusses two assignments he uses that were inspired by William Eggleston's concept of photographing democratically. This is the inaugural talk for the Teaching Tuesdays Faculty Spotlight Series. (Recorded September 20, 2016).
