Taking place each year in mid-June, Teaching with Technology Boot Camp is a week-long intensive faculty professional development experience on integrating technology into everyday classroom teaching. Throughout the experience, faculty observe demonstrations and participate in guided practice with tools that help (a) present content, (b) communicate or collaborate, (c) schedule, organize, or capture, and (d) assess learning or provide feedback. Upon completion, faculty is provided mentoring from skilled practitioners to help them implement what they have learned.
Faculty Cohorts Hired in 2009-2010 and After
Why wait until after your students are gone to get their feedback? Schedule a Teaching Analysis Poll (TAP). TAPs take just 30 minutes of class time. Email CTE@liberty.edu to schedule.
Veteran faculty is encouraged to avail themselves of workshops throughout the year that will enhance their teaching/professional development. During Faculty Orientation, all faculty must participate in selected offerings unless they are involved in teaching assignments.
GSAs are welcome to attend nearly all CAD workshops, roundtables, communities of practice, and training during the academic year. Registration for workshops can be found in the Pro Dev Portal (CTE Tab). In addition, several GSA specific training and roundtables are scheduled, such as effective classroom management, assessment, student engagement, Blackboard, audience response devices, and effective lecturing.
