Educational Development Certificate Series

Educational Development Series

Faculty who are interested in improving their understanding of teaching and learning and in acquiring advanced skills for active and interactive teaching and learning are invited to participate in this monthly series.  The regular seminars cover a variety of topics as listed in the Scheduled Workshops  listed below.  Once a year, an extended 3-hour interactive session called Faculty as Teachers (FasT) is offered.  Those faculty who complete 10 workshops over 2 years will receive a certificate of completion that they can add to their educational portfolio for recognition of ongoing professional development in education.  This certification will serve as documentation of self-motivated learning for consideration at annual evaluations and during the promotion/tenure process.  Please click on any of the following relevant links to view the current schedule, recordings of previous sessions, or workshop handouts:

 Educational Scholarship Program

The Educational Scholarship Program (ESP) is happy to present this series of educational research skills development workshops during the 2015-2016 academic year.  This workshop series is intended to provide knowledge necessary to understand the purposes and processes of education research, and to help faculty to become informed consumers of the education research literature and to be effective collaborators in education research.  Workshops alone cannot produce independent education researchers, but it is our hope that through the collective faculty development opportunities offered via our HSC colleges and the Educational Scholarship Program we will be able to support your education scholarship goals.  Your suggestions about topics for future workshop sessions are welcome.

Each workshop is scheduled for 2 hours, and is focused on a key skill or area in educational research, emphasizing opportunities for hands-on activities and active participation, so as to maximize the applicability of the workshop principles.

 Faculty as Teachers

The Faculty as Teachers (FasT) program is designed to provide participants with the “nuts and bolts” of teaching and learning: setting expectations for learners, teaching skills for active learning, giving effective feedback to learners and assessing learning.  Faculty who complete the FasT program will receive credit for having completed four faculty development workshops.

Please note that the Faculty as Teachers workshop is highly interactive and has numerous hands on components; therefore, in person attendance is required for credit.
