Faculty Development

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL RESOURCE IN DEVELOPING QUALITY DISTANCE EDUCATION 

As part of a joint effort, Project GRAD and ODELT (Office of Distance Education and Learning Technologies) host annual spring and fall faculty series workshops. By 2020, as part of the Momentum initiative Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) and PGRAD hope to produce 80% participation and quality co-curricular learning communities for our faculty focusing on best practices in pedagogy and online instructional delivery models. In addition, we hope for a 40% increase in the number of faculty who are able to teach online courses and provide online resources for students.

PGRAD and ODELT are in a joint effort to increase quality distance education

 

Project Graduation and Retention through Academic Diversity (GRAD), in collaboration with the Office of Distance Education and Learning Technologies, are promoting faculty development through online learning-focused workshops offered over the next several semesters. The seminars focus on increasing the awareness and utility of online learning resources as a way to create an interactive teaching style.These new teaching styles include blended, fully-online and flipped course offerings, which allows students to focus classroom time on putting learning into practice.
