Journal of Faculty Development, v21 n1 p23-31 Jan 2007
Can teaching technologies offer a unique avenue for senior faculty vitality and renewal? This article presents the results of an evaluation that took place during six years of a teaching technology faculty development program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a research-intensive institution. We present a profile of the program and its participants, the ranges of teaching technology projects undertaken, outcomes in terms of the teaching and career development of senior faculty, and lessons learned. (Contains 2 figures.)
