2007 — Revisiting Celebrating Excellence
September – December
Each year the Center for Teaching and Learning celebrates the contributions of adjunct (non tenure) faculty in this showcase of Teaching Excellence. To celebrate is both to “honor” and to “hold up for public notice,” and both meanings describe this event. This exhibit revisits previous Celebrations of Teaching Excellence as a focus for the Northwest College Accreditation for Teacher Education.
Each of the posters captures moments of excellence through photographs, narratives, descriptions, quotations, and student work and reflections, revealing a unique approach to teaching, a passion for learning and interacting with students. “Everybody is a story,” observes Rachel Naomi Remen, and “Everyone’s story matters.”
In this exhibit you will meet faculty from across the disciplines, and from both colleges. Some of these faculty have been at Western Oregon University for many years, while others joined the faculty recently. You will learn about their professional activities, community involvement and the passion they share with their students. You will learn about the many ways these faculty are making a difference in the lives of our students through their passion, commitment and teaching excellence.
