In this month’s digest, we are talking about unconferencing as a way to provide engaging, meaningful faculty (or really, any kind of) development.
In addition to unconferencing, there are many different formats which we can utilize for faculty development including: day-length workshops, multi-day workshops, virtual webinars, presentations at departmental meetings, or semester-long professional development courses.
What works best for you? Every institution is unique and has specific needs, but we would love to hear from the community about what has worked best at engaging faculty at your institution specifically, or what you think could work better!
In the crazy scramble to prepare faculty to teach online, we did our best to provide resources in multiple formats. We summarized good practices in text format with links to resources as well as workshop recordings. We put this material into an easily searchable and updatable ebook: The UF Instructor Guide https://ufl.pb.unizin.org/instructorguide/
The book is CC licensed and can be downloaded in multiple formats.
