M eet our 10 teaching innovators. This is not a "Top 10" list, but a list of devoted professors who might spark your interest in taking risks and trying new things in class. This is the first year The Chronicle has featured such a list, and we’ve learned a lot. We saw so many examples of innovation in campus classrooms, it was hard to narrow them down. We weren’t necessarily looking for candidates who teach cool subject matter or use cutting-edge technologies, but for those who are in it for the long haul, who constantly revise their teaching to find what works, who deeply want to connect with their students.
As part of the selection process, we sought nominations from our readers via social media, from college teaching advocates, and from higher-education leaders. We hope you’ll find our teaching innovators as inspiring as we did.
