Description

What impact do Web 2.0 technologies have on faculty development? From the perspective of the Center for Teaching and Learning, the uses of blogs, wikis, podcasts and social bookmarking has the potential to radically transform the landscape of professional development. Harnessing these technologies may be one challenge. Those involved in teaching and learning and faculty development will leave with real-world examples of these technologies and see their uses in teaching, learning and faculty development.

Next Steps

The greatest barrier or impediment to faculty development is TIME … time available for attending a 2 hour workshop, once a month, for one semester. We need to rethink TIME in faculty development.

Concluding Thoughts Regardless of the size of the impact, impact is made EVEN if only ONE faculty member is reached … the new technologies will ENCOURAGE faculty to return … we should PROVIDE professional development for ALL faculty, at ALL times, and at ALL locations … and Web 2.0 allows us to do this
