Dr. Steve Buzinski, a Teaching Assistant Professor in Psychology and Neuroscience, has been named the first UNC Center for Faculty Excellence Faculty-in-Residence.
The CFE has launched a new initiative, a faculty-in-residence program designed to support select faculty interests related to faculty development. As the first Faculty-in-Residence, Dr. Buzinski is working on the development and implementation of programming related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), a systematic, evidence-based approach to improve teaching and learning. With proper planning, UNC faculty members who take steps to improve student learning can collect data to help gauge the effectiveness of the changes they are making. In addition to providing useful feedback on teaching methods, such findings are also being used as a foundation for published articles, conference presentations, and to help bolster professional vitae.
