George Rehrey directs the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) Program at Indiana University's Bloomington campus (IUB), leading efforts to fully integrate and institutionalize a program with a 17-year history of success. He is also a Principal Instructional Consultant with IUB's Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, where he supports instructors of all ranks as they transform their courses, conduct classroom research, collect evidence of student learning, form communities of inquiry, and disseminate their work locally, nationally, and internationally.
George is a co-founding member of the Institute for Curriculum and Campus Internationalization, as well as the Internationalization Collaborative Across Bloomington, a Title VI funded project that brings faculty together from research universities and community colleges to work collectively on the integration of global student learning outcomes within curricula. He serves on the Steering Committee for the Bay View Alliance, an NSF funded and multi-institutional effort to improve STEM education. George is also on the advisory board for Taking Evidenced-based Action, a national coalition of campuses using student learning analytics to improve student engagement and success.
George's current SOTL research includes the effect of backward design upon student engagement and the influence that social and economic reward systems may have upon academic development programs.
