MU Planning Teacher and Learning Center
COLUMBIA (AP) - The University of Missouri is planning a new center to help faculty improve their teaching practices and use of technology.
Jim Spain, vice provost of undergraduate studies, says the plans are only in their beginning stages but the center is one of his top priorities.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the 2020 Strategic Plan for the campus includes a proposal for the teaching and learning excellence center.
The project is so new that the center does not have a name but Spain says he's set a deadline to have a list of proposed functions for the center ready by the end of the year.
Spain says the university will likely spend between $400,000 and $500,000 on the center.
