Faculty Development Opportunities

Roanoke College offers faculty development support for many aspects of the teaching-related work of faculty.  Workshops are open to all faculty members.

Tewksbury-Style Course Development Workshops
In these workshops, faculty developing or revising a course are lead through a design process that starts with setting course-level learning outcomes, and then follows with assignments and course modules to support those outcomes.  Faculty leave the multiday workshops with nearly complete course proposals.

Thursday Luncheon Series
Faculty development programs are held most Thursdays during the open lunch block.  All faculty are welcome.

Pre-semester INQ Teaching Group Meetings
Faculty teaching in each of the INQ core courses meet prior to the start of each semester to discuss a variety of issues including learning outcomes, assessment results from prior semesters, and development opportunities.

Other Workshops
The General Education Director coordinates periodic faculty development workshops on topics of interest to INQ faculty members.  Ideas for new workshops are always welcome.

Book Club
Would you like to read a book on some aspect of teaching and discuss it with other faculty members?  Watch for announcements of the Faculty Development Book Club.
