Faculty Research Activity Highlights
Faculty members are involved in a variety of activities throughout the year. These provide opportunities for creative ventures, connecting with area public school classrooms, and unique ways to help classroom teachers be successful. Often these develop based on specific needs of students and teachers, while tying in with a faculty member’s specific interest and skills. They can be brief projects or on-going ones that evolve through multiple semesters.
Each semester the department’s Big Picture Day provides highlights of several of these activities.
