SACS - COC Annual Meeting
December 7, 2009
Faculty teaching centers can use a variety of digital tools and electronic media to disseminate and promote new and effective teaching practices. This session will describe how centers for teaching can use e-mail, Web-based materials, and Web conferencing software to promote faculty development activities and provide direct instruction and support to faculty. The session will include an interactive activity that will generate a pool of resources that faculty developers can use on their campuses (these materials will be disseminated after the meeting). Presenters will briefly describe strategies for tracking and documenting faculty use of pedagogical resources.
Resource materials from the presentation
The activities for this session were revised after submission to include the use of student response systems (“clickers”) during the session. Facilitators polled attendees about the use of a variety of technologies to promote faculty development on their campus and facilitated a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of each strategy. The facilitators kept notes of comments and suggestions made during these discussions. Thanks to SACS and Turning Technologies, who provided clickers and technical support for this session.
The revised copy of the PowerPoint presentation posted here includes attendee responses to clicker questions.
You may also access a summary of the audience data as summarized in a Turning Point report for this session.
Participants were invited to submit a teaching tip for sharing on this web site. If you would like to contribute a teaching tip, a copy of the teaching tip submission form handout may be accessed from this page. Please provide appropriate attribution for any tips used.
Faculty developers are welcome to explore the Topical Archive of teaching tips distributed by the Center for University Teaching, Learning, and Assessment. Again, please provide appropriate attribution for any tip used. We appreciate hearing about your use of any of these materials on your campus!
We also described the Teaching Issues Writing Consortium hosted by Dr. Sally Kuhlenschmidt at Western Kentucky University. Each member of the consortium contributes an item suitable for an e-mail message to faculty and has permission to use any submissions from the members for their campus distributions. Sally Kuhlenschmidt has provided some guidelines for submissions to the WKU writing consortium for posting on this site and invites you to consider participating in the consortium.
Session handouts also included a sample teaching tip.
