Creating Online Community: A Response to the Needs of 21st Century Faculty Development
Cohn, Jenae; Stewart, Mary K.; Theisen, Cara Harwood; Comins, Dan
Journal of Faculty Development, v30 n2 p47-57 Spr 2016
Centers for teaching and learning (CTL) have traditionally relied upon on-campus programming to support faculty professional development, but as increasing numbers of faculty access resources and collaborate online, CTLs could do more to build online community. To meet this challenge, our team developed a website, EdTech Commons, which features faculty-generated content about teaching with technology. Through research from faculty development and education, along with descriptions of our process, an implementation timeline, and example site content, we argue that virtual faculty communities are the future of faculty development.
