What do we mean by "learning and teaching?"
"Learning and teaching" encompasses the full range of activities relating to student learning from the faculty perspective. The Center for Faculty Development draws on relevant research to introduce faculty to best practices with regard to pedagogical activities and student learning by focusing on such areas as:
- Curriculum design
- Assessment of student learning
- Classroom climate
- Teaching methodologies and how students learn
How do we support learning and teaching?
Our support for SU faculty members' learning and teaching practice includes the following activities:
- Faculty Learning Communities
- Classroom observations
- Small group instructional diagnosis
- Course evaluation analysis
In addition, we have launched FAQNet to enable SU faculty to connect with one another on various topics. One section of FAQNet is devoted to a wide range of specific areas relating to learning and teaching. FAQNet requires you to use your SU ID and login to access colleagues' contact information.
