Faculty are both excited and apprehensive about teaching in online and blended environments. Providing them with the structure they need to succeed requires a shift in the role of technology, an understanding of the new online and blended teaching environment, and effective administrative support.
Join us for the Faculty Development in Blended/Online Learning conference to explore the best approaches for engaging and supporting faculty interested in the online and blended teaching experience. This interactive event will cover the range of concerns critical to faculty development for online and blended learning environments. Each participant will return to campus with a relevant framework that covers their key concerns and action steps.
Effective faculty development programs are built on unifying three key aspects:
- Effective faculty use of technology
- A pedagogical shift from teaching face-to-face to teaching in an online environment
- Functional administrative systems to manage and support faculty development
Faculty development professionals, instructional technologists, and academic leaders will create a framework for developing and supporting faculty who teach in the blended and online environment.
