Early Career Scholars of
Teaching and Learning

This initiative brings together assistant professors from across Arizona State University who have a common interest in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The initiative connects participants with new opportunities, shares knowledge across ASU units and serves to create transdisciplinary partnerships in research. The group connects regularly both face-to-face and online. If you are an ASU assistant professor and interested in joining us, please contact the initiative coordinator.
