Just a quick note of congratulations to Assumption College History Professor Carl Robert Keyes, stalwart supporter and friend of the D’Amour Center for Teaching Excellence. Carl has been selected as a member of the first cohort at the Bright Institute at Knox College (see biographies of all cohort members). As Carl describes it, “This three-year program for professors of American history before 1848 at liberal arts colleges features an annual intensive two-week summer seminar devoted to integrating research and pedagogy in the undergraduate classroom.”
Carl traces his journey into this first cohort of the Bright Institute from his time in our Course Innovation Academy, and we are pleased to have played a small role in his journey to this new honor and opportunity. We look forward to continuing to learn from Carl about excellence in teaching, and to promoting his many achievements as a teacher and scholar.
