Introducing the KCPDC Faculty Academy

KCPDC Faculty Academy is a one-day workshop with five built-in teaching and learning courses focusing on: quality course design, building a learner-centered syllabus, active learning strategies to engage students, effective grading strategies, and best practices for technology in the classroom.

Foundations of Teaching Excellence will be offered twice a year: September 14, 2019 and February 8, 2020. Faculty new to teaching or interested in a refresher course would benefit from the Foundational Academy.

Advanced Elements of Teaching Excellence is available for mid-career to veteran faculty and will be scheduled for half a day on November 9, 2019.

There are now two options for faculty and staff interested in earning the Faculty Development Program (FDP) certificate:

  1. Attend one of the foundational level Faculty Academy sessions and the annual Enhancing Teaching and Learning (ETL) Conference
  2. Attend the advanced level Faculty Academy, one special topic, and the ETL Conference.
