IDEATE Community Membership and Projects
The Innovation and Design for Exploration and Analysis in Teaching Excellence (IDEATE) community is made up of full-time faculty working in the Texas A&M University System. Our members currently represent the College of Science, the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Engineering, and the College of Education & Human Development. We will be expanding over the next few years to include representation from every college and department.
We are currently in the process of developing a strong and sustainable IDEATE community core. According to the current expansion strategy, the normal route for faculty to join the community is to be invited to become co-investigators in specific research projects led by two or more IDEATE members. The second route is to express interest in joining the community during faculty development events such as workshops offered by the Center for Teaching Excellence.
Described below are some of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects conducted by members of the IDEATE community.
