For our inaugural issue, we reviewed the feedback from our 2016 ETE faculty conference—an event for USU faculty hosted every August on the USU main campus. We identified several of the presenters who received high marks in post-session surveys and invited them to submit a proceedings paper for their presentation. Many responded, and their papers now comprise the majority of this issue. Because most of the articles began as stand-up presentations for a conference, several adopt a first-person narrative style in which the authors share examples of things they have tried in their teaching that have worked. In the process they reveal key components of their teaching philosophy, often backed with research and literature and always backed with personal experience and student feedback. The disciplines represented range from math and science to business, humanities, social science, and aviation. Articles focus primarily on the application of good teaching principles and on measuring results to make improvements.
