  • Recognizing current research in the field of enhancing student innovation, and
  • Identifying specific pedagogical strategies used to help students become engaged innovators.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these teaching outcomes:

  • Appreciating pedagogy—the art and science of teaching and learning--as a significant higher education endeavor,
  • Identifying factors that influence pedagogical choices,
