Connect, Change, and Conserve: Building a Virtual Center for Teaching Excellence
Schoening, Anne M.; Oliver, Sarah
To Improve the Academy, v35 n2 p362-376 Jun 2016
In an era of limited fiscal and human resources, educational developers are seeking innovative ways to connect with their constituents. Developing a "virtual" center for teaching and learning (CTL) is one approach to consolidating development resources and reaching busy full-time and adjunct faculty. This article will describe the process used to create and sustain a Virtual Center for Teaching Excellence (vCTE) at a diverse, mid-sized university campus. This process required connection between departmental faculty developers and stakeholders, change of the campus mindset, and conservation of resources through shared efforts. Challenges faced and recommendations to overcome those challenges will be presented.
