There is a great deal of pedagogical support available to faculty teaching in the Program in General Education.
Gen Ed’s Instructional Support Services Team (ISST) is willing to meet with faculty at any stage of developing a course. ISST representatives support innovative pedagogy, including active-learning, object-based teaching, and teaching with multi-media tools, and collaborate on the development of course materials, such as writing and research guides.
Gen Ed Administrative Director Stephanie Kenen and Gen Ed Associate Director Laura Hess are happy to meet with faculty to discuss course design and development, as well as any pedagogical concerns faculty may have.
Gen Ed offers occasional faculty workshops on pedagogical topics of broad interest to the Gen Ed teaching community.
Please contact Gen Ed Associate Director Laura Hess for further information about pedagogical support.
