Faculty Development
In this fast paced technological world it is essential that we stay as close to the cutting edge as possible. By offering workshops designed to provide you with both opportunities to explore new technology, enhance current technology, and ground it in pedagogy, we hope to make the fast paced world slow down.

Current Offerings:

  • Online Teaching Strategies Course
    This course focuses on the principles and best practices that support development of online courses. In addition, the course also identifies tangible tools and processes that are used in building effective online courses. The course allows participants to differentiate between an on-campus delivered course and an online course. By applying a model of instructional design, participants will end the course with the tools they need to develop a successful online course.
  • Faculty Orientation
    The Orientation course will provide materials, tools and tips for faculty’s success in an online course for the College of Allied Health Sciences. This course will provide an opportunity for faculty to demonstrate use of online principles, Blackboard functions, grading procedures, and overall course execution.
  • Classroom Tour
    Prior to each semester we offer an opportunity to be guided through the technology that exists in the college’s electronic classrooms. This is a great opportunity to gets hands on experience to get comfortable teaching in the classroom.
  • Quality Matters – Applying the Quality Matters Rubric Workshop
    QM is a faculty driven, peer review process, to ensure quality in online course design. The 6-hour workshop introduces the QM rubric and the course review process. It is ideal for faculty seeking to improve their online course design as well as those interested in becoming a QM peer reviewer.
