Faculty members at a faculty development training program

Rutgers Office for Faculty Development

To support all Rutgers faculty during these challenging times, we've created several  VIRTUAL OPPORTUNITIES  for the summer.

Summer Offerings

HAVE YOU DEVELOPED YOUR FALL TEACHING STRATEGY?

We are collaborating with CTAAR to help you develop a working strategy for Fall 2020. On July 14, CTAAR is offering a workshop Pedagogy Before Technology (REGISTER HERE).

The Office For Faculty Development is offering three follow-up sessions to help faculty implement the strategies learned. Experts recommend that faculty should begin the fall semester with materials completed for half the course. Use these post-workshop discussions to help you get started NOW!

Discussions will include:

  • Challenges and successes around implementing CTAAR workshop ideas
  • Feedback from other faculty
