The award grants up to $20,000 toward their project, “Scaffolding Student Success in Marquette University Coursework,” which holds the potential to enhance Marquette’s institutional capacity to promote student academic success. Committee on Teaching members praised the focus on promoting success in high-DFW courses, alignment with research-based reform recommendations from the National Academy of Sciences, and a promising course design model that could be translated to other departments teaching high-DFW courses.
“This initiative embodies Marquette’s commitment to preparing its students for success from the second they step on campus,” Provost Kimo Ah Yun said. “Marquette is fortunate to have this committed team of educators, and I’m delighted that they have been recognized with a Teaching Enhancement Award.”
The Way Klingler Teaching Enhancement Award is an annual award given to a team of two or more faculty members to develop, implement and evaluate a specific teaching project. One award of up to $20,000 is given to the selected project team for one fiscal year.
