JMU faculty are invited to submit an application for the Engaged Teacher-Scholar (ETS) Program. The goal of the ETS Program is to recognize JMU faculty who engage in meaningful evidence-based teaching and learning scholarship.  The program aims to support faculty growth in a process of becoming ETS leaders across JMU’s campus. Engaged Teacher-Scholars view teaching and learning from a scholarly point of view.  Whether their work is called Discipline-based Education Research, Teaching Inquiry, or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, these scholars are educators who engage in evidence-based teaching and learning scholarly activities. 

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes:

  • Developing a personalized ETS plan for the Spring 2018 semester and beyond,
  • Developing a plan to engage department-level or college-level colleagues with ETS efforts, and
  • Being a ETS leader and champion for the JMU community.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these scholarship outcomes: 

  • Enhancing scholarly productivity, and
  • Practicing the integration of scholarship with teaching and other career aspirations.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these teaching outcomes: 

  • Practicing the integration of scholarship and teaching, and
  • Integrating knowledge of student development models in teaching philosophies and practice.
