Unicoi State Park and Conference Center – Helen, GA
March 23-24, 2012
The 2012 faculty symposium explored the teaching/research nexus or how can research universities build more effective bridges between research, teaching and learning. How can our very best teachers and researchers work together to advance the mission of the University? The nexus was examined in light of classes, curriculum, student learning, faculty roles and rewards and institutional structure. Recommendations for strengthening the teaching/research nexus were developed.
