In particular, Michael Smith, Assistant Professor of History and Fellow in the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, provided skillful facilitation of the two viewings of the film Declining by Degrees, and a stimulating, well-designed workshop on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning as a capstone to the event. He also served as a co-designer of the entire institute.
