Teaching and learning are joint ventures at Augustana. Instructors are primarily engaged in teaching and students in learning, but the roles often reverse as students bring new experiences, points of view and ideas to the class. Our teachers learn to view their discipline and craft from a new vantage point which then impacts their teaching and students' learning. This cycle of teaching and learning is constant both within and outside of the classroom.
Teaching and learning are promoted and celebrated in a variety of ways at Augustana. Consider the teaching awards and learning awards that Augustana bestows on its outstanding teachers and students. We also host several events and initiatives intended to support its students and faculty in engaged teaching and learning.
