The Teaching Scholars Program via Zoom focuses on developing educational theories/technologies as well as promoting educational skills, critical thinking, and innovative approaches among WVU Health Sciences Center faculty. This program is open to faculty on all WVU Campuses.
The program is as an online course via Secure OnLine Environment (SOLE) with only one hour of meeting time each week from September 2, 2021, thru May 20, 2022. Weekly attendance is important as well as completion of weekly online evaluations.
Scholars will read the online resources at their convenience and come prepared to the Zoom session for an informal discussion with an expert on that topic. During the second year of the program, scholars work in groups on education related research.
Applications should be submitted electronically by Aug. 13. Enrollment will be limited to 30 faculty.
