Five Penn State faculty to be featured on ‘The Academic Minute’

Five Penn State faculty will be featured in a week’s worth of episodes of “The Academic Minute,” presenting on teaching and learning techniques.

“The Academic Minute” is a 2 1/2-minute module released every Monday-Friday featuring guest faculty from universities across the U.S. The week of April 12 will feature Penn State educators Bill Goffe, Justine Lindeman, Katherine McLean, Daniel J. Mallinson and Jeffrey Stone. It is available in written and audio form, read by each guest presenter.

"Almost three years ago, we created a new position at the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence to support faculty who are interested in doing research on their teaching practice," said Laura Cruz, associate research professor with the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence. "As listeners will hear in 'The Academic Minute,' that position has served as a catalyst for rigorous, interesting and innovative research on the learning that takes place in our classrooms at Penn State."
