Teaching and Curricular Matters

For faculty and advisors, working in the context of the open curriculum brings unique rewards. Brown students are willing to take risks, so the classroom can become a place of exploration and exchange. Because students have chosen their classes freely, they are committed to the material in a very real way. For this reason, Brown faculty report higher levels of satisfaction than their colleagues at comparable institutions. They also tend to be motivated to become better teachers, and to participate actively in our academic advising networks.
