Wayne "Mick" Charney, PhD, associate professor of architecture at Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, has been designated the 2014-2015 Coffman Chair for University Distinguished Teaching Scholars. The position was created in 1995 to highlight K-State's commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching and learning. A faculty member acknowledged as a leading teaching scholar is appointed to the chair for one academic year, but all who are selected retain the title of University Distinguished Teaching Scholar throughout their careers.
The Coffman Chair receives release time to pursue a research project that investigates some aspect of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Charney will be investigating ways to rehabilitate and resuscitate the traditional large lecture course format so that it continues to be an effective and meaningful educational experience.
Charney has been teaching architectural history for 36 years, the last 27 of them at Kansas State University. He has been an SAH member since 1976.
