Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 Innovation in Action Awards!  We had twenty-two great examples of the work faculty are doing in and out of the classroom that create effective, meaningful, and impactful learning experiences for our students.  With 79 votes, Arts and Humanities took away the school trophy with individual category winners going to the following: 

Scholarship of Research: Kim Scheffer, for her work researching college persistence of Hispanic community college students. 
   
Scholarship of Application: Ryan Witt, for partnering with the CWI Communications and Marketing team to provide students an opportunity to apply rhetorical appeals to community projects.   

Scholarship of Integrative Learning: Nikki Gorrell, for her work to help our Anthropology students create a learning experience for middle school students around the larger themes of Ecological Stewardship, Global Citizenship, Anthropology and Native American Heritage.   

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Meagan Newberry, for her work to successfully incorporate peer feedback in her classroom through the use of online platforms and effective instructional methodology.   

Faculty were provided an opportunity to share their work and experiences with their colleagues during the Professional Development Day on March 1, 2019, through lightning presentations, a poster session, and interactive panel presentations.
