Abstract

Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne, a comprehensive Master’s I university with 750 full and part-time teachers and an enrollment of more than 13,000 students, became a CASTL Affiliate institution in November 2008. This article describes the journey of our teaching center, led by our faculty members, as together we have embarked on the road toward integrating scholarly teaching into the culture of our university. Our hope is that others will recognize themselves as "fellow travelers" and be encouraged by what can be accomplished with fairly modest resources and by becoming members of a larger scholarly community.
