Professor Sandlin named Interim Co-Director of the Center for Teaching

Professor Sandlin and Professor Deon Miles (Chemistry) have been named Interim Co-Directors of the Center for Teaching for the remainder of the year. They will be working together to offer programs on teaching for all Sewanee faculty, such as the new Teach & Tell series in which faculty gather once a month to share teaching techniques and ideas. They will also administer a faculty mentor program, sponsor events for new faculty, and publish a monthly newsletter. In addition, they are chairing the Center for Teaching task force, which will make recommendations for the future of the Center for Teaching based on their study of model Centers at peer institutions, faculty needs, and best practices in faculty development. While Professor Sandlin is excited about taking on this new challenge, she will continue to chair the Spanish department and teach Spanish courses as well.
