At Renewal of Teaching this month, Grace Atkins presented on Open Pedagogy with two other faculty members. Her co-panelist Dr. Steven Keller made a point of praising the Libraries’ reserves programs. Over the course of Fall 2018, his students checked out his personal copies of chemistry textbooks a total of 69 times. The third panelist Dr. Jenna Wintemberg from the School of Health Professions also discussed how she uses electronic reserves to keep her courses affordable for students. Over 50 instructors, as well as the director of the Teaching for Learning Center and the Provost were in attendance.
Thank you, Burt Fields, for quickly pulling course reserves stats when Dr. Keller requested them shortly before the panel!!
