The Robert and Mary Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center works with individual faculty, departments, or other groups looking to refine their teaching and learning efforts. The topics of our workshops, peer learning opportunities, and confidential individual consultations are varied and meet the needs of beginning as well as seasoned instructors. A strong foundation of course design is essential for the successful delivery of an online or hybrid course. We can help you solidify your learning objectives, curricular roadmap, assessment methods, or student engagement approaches.
The Instructional Design for eLearning group has one principal goal: to develop confident and competent faculty, prepared to teach in blended and fully online learning environments, who are able to integrate technology in a way that is learner-centered and pedagogically sound. To meet this goal, IDeL provides a number of different training opportunities designed to meet faculty needs, from campus-wide workshops to one-on-one training sessions and faculty teaching circles.
The eLearning and Emerging Technologies team offers a wide variety of services and resources for faculty including: Instructional Design for eLearning (IDeL), Blackboard, eLearning and Instructional Technology Specialists, a Digital Media Developer and Digital Studio, and the Atomic Object Technology Showcase. We seek to support faculty through instructional design, digital media creation, seminars, and individual consultations on how to effectively use and integrate innovative instructional technologies into teaching.
Liaison librarians can create custom workshops for faculty. Topics may range from research databases and ebooks to innovative library services for online and hybrid learning. Librarians also can create short tutorials, online guides, and videos on library resources in your discipline. Contact your liaison librarian to plan your learning activity.
