Having presented for the past three years at the annual Teaching Professor Conference, Dr. Patty Phelps has been appointed to its Advisory Board for a two-year term by Dr. Maryellen Weimer, editor of The Teaching Professor newsletter. Dr. Patty Phelps, who currently divides her time between teaching in the Department of Teaching and Learning in the College of Education and directing the UCA Instructional Development Center (IDC), will be involved in planning the 9th and 10th annual conferences along with reviewing and evaluating conference proposals. Dr. Phelps is scheduled to present at the conference for each of the two years.
The 2012 conference will be held in Washington, DC, June 1-3, with the theme to "Educate, Engage, Inspire."
