Faculty Development

The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning aims to foster excellence in teaching and learning by providing faculty with tools, development opportunities, workshops, and consultation services.

Faculty Development works closely with the other divisions of Library and Technology Services to provide a coordinated array of support for faculty. Faculty seeking help developing effective writing assignments to teach disciplinary subject matter and communication skills are encouraged to meet with Writing Across the Curriculum Coordinator. The TRAC (Technology, Research and Communications) Writing Fellows Program trains students to serve as peer tutors in discipline-based courses and consult with faculty on developing effective writing assignments.

Faculty Development offers confidential, voluntary consultations with faculty about their teaching, which may include discussions of effective approaches to teaching, classroom observation visits, informal mid-semester evaluations of classes, assistance with course development questions, and advice on the effective incorporation of academic technology into courses.
