Faculty Academy

While the use of technology is prevalent in the lives of our students, comparatively few faculty have embraced the technology available to them so that they can help students develop skills that will help them survive in a wired world. In fact, few of us understand the scholarship of teaching and learning that can help more of our students succeed whether we use technology or not.

The CTL and the Provost’s Office have launched the Faculty Academy for Technology and Pedagogy to help faculty explore new teaching practices and open up a dialogue between faculty on our campus about the tools and practices that work best for them.

Spring 2020

Sessions on distinct tools and practices are held on most Fridays during the semester at 3:30PM.

In the first session, a CTL staff member or an invited guest will introduce a tool or practice.

In the second session, faculty in the academy will brainstorm ways that this practice might apply across disciplines to our broad range of classes. Towards the end of the semester, academy members will share changes in their current or upcoming syllabi that can serve as guideposts for other colleagues considering similar efforts.
