Faculty members from USU's Department of History with the 2012 Department Teaching Excellence Award.

The Provost’s Series on Instructional Excellence continues Tuesday, Jan. 15 and features a presentation by faculty members from Utah State University’s History Department. The session runs 3:30-5 p.m. at Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 154. The series is sponsored by the office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, and all faculty members are invited.

The history faculty at Utah State, winners of the 2012 Department Teaching Excellence Award, focuses its classroom work by asking what their students should know, understand and be able to do in courses and history degrees. Since 2009, the department has led a national history “Tuning” project, a faculty-led initiative to clarify the knowledge, skills and habits of mind, generated through disciplinary study. “Tuning” has sparked new strategies for teaching and learning.

In the presentation, history faculty will describe innovative ways they’ve reimagined their teaching for the diverse audiences.

USU’s History Department includes 20 faculty members on the Logan campus and six at regional and USU Eastern campuses. The faculty teaches courses in the general education program, lower and upper division classes and master’s level courses. All have regular teaching assignments; and all teach the department’s freshman level survey courses, not simply courses for majors and graduate students.

For interested faculty not on the Logan campus, the session will be broadcast to regional sites. Broadcast venues for the workshop include the following:

Blanding — Administration Conference Room

Brigham City — Room O

Ephraim — Room D

Moab — Room N

USU Eastern — Reeves 125

Roosevelt — SC 132

Salt Lake — Room B

Tooele — Room 163

Vernal — Room B109

*The presentation will also be recorded.
