In his article, "The Scholarship of Teaching: What's the Problem?", Randy Bass asks, "How might we make the problematization of teaching a matter of regular communal discourse? How might we think of teaching practice, and the evidence of student learning, as problems to be investigated, analyzed, represented, and debated?"

Each of the projects linked below sought to generate communal discourse out of the "problems" of liberal arts teaching. They include examinations of existing courses, investigations into better integrating students' curricular and co-curricular experiences, experiments about promoting students' engagement, and discussions about managing impediments to their successful performance.

Faculty took up these "problems" of teaching in the natural sciences, performing arts, social sciences, and humanities, as well as outside of the classroom in student athletics.

As in the ACM-Teagle Collegium on Student Learning, in the projects linked below, faculty sought to improve student learning by turning a scholarly and reflective eye towards their own teaching practices.
