Robin Morgan (1994), Director of the Institute for Learning and Teaching Excellence at IU Southeast, former FACET Director (2011-2015), and Professor of Psychology, will help lead development of a university-wide online module series that provides high-quality, evidence-based materials on effective teaching practices.
The module series will focus on all types of instruction including face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses:
- Designing a Course: Where do I start?
- Assessment: How do I know my students are learning?
- Active and Interactive Learning: What can my students "do” that is real world based?
- Organizing Content: How can I make, find, and use resources?
- Presence: How do I interact with my students in and outside the classroom?
- Structuring the Course: How do I put it all together and explain it to my students?
Robin is ideally poised to develop this online series. She has demonstrated a long-term commitment to creating and implementing scalable programs that promote excellence in teaching such as the FACET peer review training modules and the expansion of FACET’s Associate Faculty and Lecturer Conference (FACLON). She also is at the forefront of developing quality online courses and content, which was acknowledged when she received the President’s Award for Teaching and Learning Technology.
The project will take place as a collaboration with University Academic Affairs, the centers for teaching and learning, UITS, and FACET.
This project emanates from a recommendation in the State of the University Teaching and Learning Report calling for “access to both face-to-face and online options for faculty professional development.” This report followed a year studying IU’s current resources available to support effective teaching.
