Join the Office of Transdisciplinary Educational approaches to advance Kentucky (TEK) and Provost DiPaola for a networking session with community partners. The session will take place from 4:00-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, in the TEK Office at the University of Kentucky William T. Young Library.
This fall, the TEK Faculty Fellows are participating in faculty learning communities facilitated by the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT). Through regular small group meetings, faculty explore approaches to transdisciplinary curricular and instructional approaches, including community partnerships, team teaching, assignment design and inquiry-based learning. Over the course of the academic year, TEK Faculty Fellows will work on their courses collaboratively, share ideas and feedback and continue to support each other as they teach their new and revised courses in the spring.

Transdisciplinary Educational approaches to advance Kentucky, or TEK, challenges faculty and students to engage with complex, multidimensional and context-specific issues. Some have described these issues as “wicked problems” that exceed the capacity of any one framework, approach or perspective to provide an adequate or lasting solution. Moreover, TEK leverages these issues for students to develop essential employability skills, including the highly valued abilities to engage multiple points of view, reflect on growth, communicate ideas effectively and collaborate in teams.
TEK (Transdisciplinary Educational Approaches to Advance Kentucky), the University of Kentucky's new Quality Enhancement Plan, and the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching are pleased to invite applications for the first cohort of TEK Faculty Fellows for the 2023-2024 academic year.
