Abstract:
For the past four years the University of California, Berkeley has engaged in an initiative dedicated to enhancing undergraduate education, leveraging campus-wide resources to support and sustain curricular transformation, and strengthening the community of faculty focused on teaching and learning. The Mellon Library/Faculty Fellowship for Undergraduate Research initiative was championed by senior administrators including the University Librarian, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, and Dean of the Undergraduate Division of the College of Letters and Science, and sustained by a collaboration of partners from six academic support units similar to those on most university campuses. Throughout this multi-year project, librarians, educational technologists, and other pedagogical experts partnered with more than 40 faculty from the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and interdisciplinary studies to redesign courses and assignments to incorporate research-based learning. Their work has impacted more than 12,000 students enrolled in the redesigned undergraduate courses, energized a community of faculty, and created a solid foundation for ongoing partnerships among academic support units. This session will provide a brief background about the initiative, highlights of the activities and impact, and suggestions for other institutions interested in creating a similar initiative based on our evaluation of this projects impact on individual faculty, student learning, and the campus culture.
