Bootcamp For Faculty Development


Published on

Terri Johnson, Director of Instructional Technology, Carroll University

Our campus introduced faculty “Bootcamps” as a way to engage faculty in redesigning face-to-face courses for online delivery. Bootcamps were 3-day workshops developed to overcome factors contributing to technology anxiety among faculty, such as time constraints and lack of rewards. I will demonstrate how our approach to Bootcamp can be applied in other faculty development scenarios as provided by the audience. Participants will leave with ideas of how to overcome obstacles to faculty development efforts.
