The original Master Teacher Seminar was established in 1962 by Roger Garrison at Westbrook College in Portland, Maine. Since then, it has evolved into a national movement with more than a dozen annual seminars and an international movement with seminars in Canada and China. Garrison founded the seminar on the following beliefs:
- Excellent teaching takes place in American higher education.
- Teachers striving for mastery of their craft have much to share.
- Bringing teachers together in a relaxed, informal atmosphere to share their successes and their experiences enhances the skills of all.
