NSF Grantees Poster Session
“Research I (R1) university” is a category that the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education uses to indicate universities in the United States that engage in the highest levels of research activity. There is currently no analogous classification for a T1 institution: institutions that engage in the highest levels of teaching activity. In Fall 2020, as part of an NSF IUSE project designed to enhance student-centered pedagogical practices and shift institutional culture, the research team hosted a symposium focused on the importance of teaching at the core of an institution. The attendees included 98 STEM faculty from several universities all interested in the topic of reflective teaching. Many of the participants had been trained in evidence-based instructional practices and faculty peer observation. A survey of participants asked these faculty to reflect on the idea of a T1 classification and how it might be framed in the broader conversation about enhancing STEM teaching. The survey responses were grouped based on change quadrants. The responses indicated alignment around reflective teaching, inclusive classroom practices, and recognition of excellence in pedagogy.
