What is the Reflective Practice Project?

  • The Center for Teaching Excellence’s Reflective Practice Project was begun in 1993 to support an exploratory and reflective approach to teaching and learning.

    Its work includes:

    • Monthly large group meetings or mini-workshops and discussions to explore teaching strategies and other topics relating to the teaching process most often offered by IUP professors
    • Teaching circles or peer learning communities formed around a common discipline or a common theme.  
    • Saturday workshops presented by experts on specific areas of teaching and learning, publication, student advising, and other important aspects of academic life.
    • A yearly event to reflect upon yearly accomplishments and recognize active participants
