Faculty Spotlights

Case studies of innovative practocies.

Faculty Spotlights are case studies of teaching innovations we’ve discovered here at Boise State University. Each Spotlight is composed of a video that highlights a Boise State faculty member and the exciting teaching approaches they are using in the classroom. These videos are complemented by additional resources about the particular teaching approaches used by the featured faculty member.

Why Spotlight?

Spotlighting faculty members utilizing innovative and active approaches to teaching allows us to see case studies of faculty trying out and implementing new teaching tools and techniques.  It’s one thing to be exposed to an idea of a teaching tool or approach; it’s another thing to see it in action. We hope spotlights will be a resource for faculty interested in trying new teaching approaches, inside and outside of the classroom.

Propose a Spotlight

Are there innovative approaches that you or a colleague are using in your teaching that you’d like to share with other faculty at Boise State? Consider contacting the CTL via email at if you are interested in giving a Teaching and Learning Spotlight. We’d love to hear about it! After you submit the form, we’ll contact you shortly to discuss your proposed Spotlight session.
