December Update

December 18, 2014
Dear Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship members:

As we come to the end of another year, I am grateful to have served as Chair of the Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship Knowledge Community in 2014. The TLS team - and extended group of subcommittee volunteers - has been wonderful and I'm proud of the work we have accomplished. In addition to our ongoing work around assessment and evaluation (look for more great sessions at the 2015 Annual Conference!), just a few key achievements include:

  • Publication of the most recent volume of the Global Studies Literature Review
  • Announcement of Sonia Massari as the 2014 TLS Innovative Research award winner
  • Updating of the "Curriculum Integration: Best Practices" resource
We welcome your involvement in the work of Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship. Please review our resources at the NAFSA website and plan to connect with us in Boston this coming May!

All the best,

Sue Mennicke
Chair TLS, 2014...
