Murphy Named Teagle Fellow

The Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) assumes primary responsibility for the professional development of Dartmouth’s teachers. By cultivating a community of informed conversation about how people learn and promoting collaboration among educators, DCAL advances Dartmouth’s mission to prepare students for life-long learning. Acting on the conviction that preparation for life-long learning means understanding how to set learning goals, assess progress towards those goals and plan activities to promote such progress, DCAL “aims to help shift the culture of higher education from one that regards its mission as delivery of instruction to one that seeks its task as producing learning. DCAL proposes with the Teagle Foundation’s support they will develop and implement a program in which selected departments and academic programs enhance the ways their faculty members design courses and assess student learning.
