New coordinator for Faculty Exchange for Teaching Excellence

Submitted by Jana Fallin

The Kansas State University Teaching and Learning Center announces the new coordinator for the Faculty Exchange for Teaching Excellence, or FETE, program. Sara Kearns, associate professor at Hale Library, has been selected to coordinate the program, which includes an advisory board representing all K-State colleges.  

The Faculty Exchange for Teaching Excellence was founded in 1997 by Ann Stalheim Smith, university distinguished teaching scholar. The program, under the umbrella of the Teaching and Learning Center, is dedicated to the enhancement of teaching and learning at Kansas State University. This mission is accomplished by a committee of colleagues from each college and the Polytechnic Campus in Salina who work together to create, promote and implement professional development programming for the campus community. FETE sponsors workshops, presentations, and study groups open to all K-State faculty and graduate students, and led by K-State faculty and experts from other institutions who share their experiences, expertise and passion for enhancing student learning.

Kearns follows Peggy Honey, associate professor of apparel textiles and interior design, who served as FETE coordinator for two years. She previously served on the advisory board for several years. The Teaching and Learning Center is grateful for the excellent leadership Honey has provided for the FETE events.
