Professional Development Amid Change: Fostering Academic Excellence and Faculty Productivity at Teaching-Intensive Universities
Carney, Mary A.; Ng, Laura E; Cooper, Tom
Journal of Faculty Development, v30 n2 p27-35 Spr 2016
The future of faculty development rests, in part, on forming guided "communities of practice" to foster the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), which may enhance both scholarly productivity and pedagogical effectiveness. This article will discuss University of North Georgia's SoTL Academy, which bridges geographic and scheduling distances through multimodal communications, using meetings, videoconferencing, and asynchronous online communication to form in-person and virtual communities. The SoTL Academy focuses on current SoTL research, project design methodologies, assessment practices, and publication opportunities. Flexible SoTL development programming supports faculty as they engage in research and respond to ongoing changes in higher education.
