The Teaching & Learning Forum was created by a group of faculty in 1992. The Forum offers retreats, book groups, workshops, collaborative projects, and other initiatives in support of faculty development. Activities are directed by the Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (TLA) Committee , a standing committee of the Faculty Senate, and the appointed coordinator who also serves as chair of the TLA Committee. Forum offices are located in Room 326 of the Stewart Library. The office is staffed year round. Please visit our library of books and materials on teaching and learning, including updated versions of MLA, APA and AMA manuals for publication and editing.

Grant Forum: Funding Your Research at a Regional Public University through Nationally Competitive Grants

Weber State University welcomes

Rajiv Sharma

Portland State University

Finding funding for major social science research at a regional public university requires a combination of hard work, support from colleagues, students, and administrators, as well as large helpings of luck and chutzpah. In 2015 Rajiv Sharma of Portland State University received a large National Institute of Health (NIH) grant to fund his project on healthcare economics.  Join us to share the experience of one project in its fifth year and is producing important evidence regarding access to primary care and how state and federal policies affect access to primary care. Contact with any questions. 

Professor Sharma specializes in microeconomics and health economics. He has collaborated extensively with physicians, and has advised public agencies on health and economic issues. Professor Sharma has led the Longitudinal Access to Physicians Study (LAPS) since its inception in 2013. LAPS audits primary care physicians nationally to assess the effects of state a federal policies on access to health care. The first paper from this study was recently published in Economics Letters. The study is now funded by the NIH.
