“Nurturing a Culture of Teaching Excellence in Universities”
Emin Çivi
Bilkent University

Nurturing a culture of teaching excellence in universities through creating sense of community teaching and research have long been considered two of the primary functions of universities. But even though many of today’s universities consistently and very publicly repeat the common rhetoric that teaching and research “are coequals”, one often encounters opposing views both in personal experience and in the relevant literature. In this talk, Dr. Çivi will share his initiatives and efforts to get across-the-board recognition of the value of effective teaching in a university setting.

Bio: Emin Çivi is a 3M National Teaching Fellow and Professor of Marketing at the University of New Brunswick, Saint John, Canada. He is currently teaching at the Faculty of Business Administration in Bilkent University as a visiting professor.
