EXPO’s Rosemary Russ named recipient of VAN HISE OUTREACH TEACHING AWARD

April 16, 2022

Dr. Rosemary Russ
Associate professor of curriculum and instruction University Wisconsin



Russ directs the campus-wide Madison Teaching and Learning Excellence program (MTLE) to support early career faculty, and has helped redirect the program to embrace inclusive teaching methods more fully. Her research program reflects her commitments to inclusive teaching and learning experiences both in traditional instruction and in her campus service. With her research, Russ has focused on the intersection of “student sensemaking” (i.e., how students work through questions they find meaningful) and inclusive teaching. Her on-campus efforts also extend to doctoral students who are teaching assistants across campus and are preparing to teach elsewhere. Russ has shaped the curricular trajectory of MTLE — now the flagship professional development in teaching program for assistant professors at the university — to reposition equity, diversity and inclusion as indisputable principles in teaching and learning.

EXPO of Wisconsin is proud and honored to work next to Rosemary, we love her!
