Baylor Teaching Commons

Introduction and Invitation

The quality of our teaching is important because it has a direct impact on the quality of our students' learning. Effective teaching for significant learning challenges each of us. We develop as teachers when we are reflective practitioners and when we engage the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Are you interested in meeting regularly with a small group of teachers to talk about teaching and learning? Small groups include full time and part-time faculty as well as graduate students who are teaching. If so, please plan to join one of the small groups that make up our Baylor Teaching Commons-learning communities formed and facilitated by teachers, for teachers, answering the challenge of teaching for significant learning.

The Teaching Commons was organized Fall 2006 when over 60 faculty members and graduate students gathered to explore and develop this idea and then formed groups. If you would like to join the Baylor Teaching Commons, please send an email to Laine Scales so we can add you to our list for email updates. Then email the group leader to express interesting in joining.

If you are interested in facilitating a small group or have a particular topic of interest please note this in your email.

We hope you will join us!
