Testimonials

We quite immodestly put for this testimony of our work.In the Foreward to the book, Doing the Scholarship of Teac hing and Learning in Mathematics, edited by Jacqueline M. Dewar and Curtis D. Bennett and published in 2015 by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), David Bressoud, former President of the MAA, says: “It is impossible to discuss the development of SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) without acknowledging the role of Brian Winkel. I want to close this foreword with a personal note of gratitude. He was the founding editor of PRIMUS - Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies, one of the foremost venues for the publication of the results of scholarly teaching in mathematics. He established it in 1991, as SoTL was just beginning to emerge within the mathematical community, and guided it for twenty years, for most of that time without any editorial assistance. To qualify as scholarship, SoTL requires peer review. While there are opportunities for such peer review, including MAA’s own journals, they are limited, and would be much more so without PRIMUS. Brian has been tireless in his encouragement of scholarly teaching and insistent on maintaining the standards of scholarship. All of us who aspire to scholarly teaching owe him a tremendous debt.”
