A NTLC Community of Practice (CoP) is a year-long program focusing on a topic or issue about enhancing teaching and learning. It is comprised of a group of instructors who come together to explore a topic in which all of the participants have a mutual interest in studying; one that encourages "honest discussion" of some higher education issue.
Infusing Diversity Across the Curriculum Project
This project was offered for five years, with 46 instructors transforming their courses with the infusion of multiculturalism and diversity-based content and experiences. Throughout the history of the project, a wealth of course assignments, assessments, and student and faculty learning outcomes were developed. The disciplines of past participants have included: Social Science, Food & Nutrition, Education, Business, Engineering, Human Development and Family Studies, Marketing, Marketing Education, Psychology, Mathematics, English, Philosophy, and many others. This project has reached several hundred students across disciplines and across campus. The Infusing Diversity Across the Curriculum Project was facilitated by two faculty co-investigators, Virginia Lea (2010-17) and Holly Teuber (2010-14) and the Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center's director. It has also been the recipient of the UW System Ann Lydecker Diversity Education Award in 2012. The project was supported by UW System OPID as well as UW-Stout's Chancellor's Office, Provost Office, Diversity Leadership Team, campus Deans, and department chairs.
