We want your feedback.

TEEC conducted a survey of the faculty requesting input on plans for upcoming professional development opportunities. We received over 170 responses to the survey and excellent feedback. The following report summarizes the responses to the survey.

TEEC Newsletter

52% of the respondents were aware of the TEEC newsletter and 64% of those respondents read it at one time or another.   Suggested topics involved both skill areas (e.g., communication, leadership, professionalism) and students’ learning.  More relevancy for junior faculty was also suggested.  We will continue to publish the newsletter and include articles on the areas of interest identified by the survey respondents.

Teaching Resources Whitepapers & Video Bank

56% of respondents thought they would be likely to use or access whitepapers on best practices in teaching.  49% noted they are likely to use or access videos on best practices in teaching.

Suggested themes for whitepapers include:  pedagogical methodologies, scholarship of teaching and learning, classroom techniques and management, skill building, service learning, student segments (freshmen, international students), assessment, and grading.

The TEEC newsletter began publication in January of 2013.  We plan to publish two issues per semester (Available on the faculty senate website). Each issue contains 5 sections: scholarship of teaching and learning, a faculty spotlight, a technology tip, a teaching tip, and a student spotlight.  These articles are designed to relate to all teaching faculty, part time and full time, and new and seasoned professors alike.
