UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State faculty teach in many different ways, in courses of all different types and sizes, filled with students who are just as diverse. In 2014 and 2015, faculty teaching and students learning were captured by a photographer who has spent more than a decade taking images of learning environments.
From 4 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 6, Penn State will celebrate the importance of faculty to the teaching mission of the University during an event, “Tribute to Excellence: Through a Photographer’s Lens,” at the Nittany Lion Inn at University Park. The event presents the work of photographer Martin Springborg during visits to some of Penn States’ colleges and campuses. The event is sponsored by the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence.
Springborg himself will be on hand to discuss his photodocumentary project, which tells a story about teaching and learning at Penn State and helps to celebrate the mission of faculty and their interactions with their students. Those interested in attending can register here. Registration is encouraged but not required. University President Eric Barron will give opening remarks, and Provost Nick Jones and Vice President and Dean for Undergraduate Education Rob Pangborn will also attend.
