Published on

As many institutions have invested in faculty development programming and understand that it is pivotal to the success of innovation in course designs and academic programming, there is a need to ensure that the products resulting from these efforts are meeting institutional standards of quality for student learning and other outcomes. We have seen an array of mediated forms of learning (hybrid, blended, flipped, online, self-paced, competency-based, MOOCs, and more) being diffused across campuses and systems, and many of us have been asked to provide evidence of the effectiveness of our faculty development programming to ensure the quality of classes and programs. Administrators are looking for an ROI in faculty development as we are seeing decreases in funding, enrollments, and budgets. This presentation will share an approach to ensuring quality and evaluating the effectiveness of faculty development, including the sharing of resources.

Outcomes: Learn about a life cycle of ensuring quality in faculty development * Identify steps in a backward-design approach to evaluating the effectiveness of faculty development * Share potential resources to use in future efforts
