BbWorld: New models for enhancing faculty development and student engagement

Version 1

    Join us for two impactful presentations brought to you by Laureate Education Inc and The Center for Innovation in Learning at National University.

    Laureate’s Faculty Development Learning Ecosystem (FDLE) is a function of the Laureate Center for Global Faculty Excellence. The mission of the FDLE is to provide easily consumable training content enabling our faculty to deliver superior student outcomes. FDLE modules are short (less than an hour in length), self-paced, graphically rich, focused on critical faculty competencies, and available anytime/anywhere. This presentation will describe how and why FDLE was developed and provide information on how it is meeting the needs of Laureate’s global faculty.

    The Center for Innovation in Learning at National University developed an advanced Blackboard training for faculty to align with National University's mission of exceptional student experience through academic excellence, education technology, and professional development. This pilot program aims to contribute to a culture of innovation, quality, and collaboration among faculty. This training addresses three areas in which students should be engaged: with their course content, with their peers, and with the instructor (also known as the Trifecta of Engagement). Instructors in our pilot program complete a course titled Enhanced Teaching & Learning Strategies, which has three units of modules and hands-on practice activities to complete in a partially built sandbox course.
