Learning & Teaching Resources
The Faculty Professional Development Center has gathered many resources available to faculty and graduate students. See our database (http://www.et.kent.edu/fpdc-db/) to view videos, tutorials, and articles providing instruction in Clickers and other FPDC resources.
The FAQs page is a collaboration of the New and Part-time Faculty FAQs as well as other frequently asked questions that have been drawn to our attention. The FAQs page has various links, articles, videos, and many more to try and improve on the discovery of the answer to your question.
Educators at Kent State University are taking innovative approaches to cultivating student learning—and students are taking notice. In on-campus interviews, students have begun to report on the most significant learning experiences they have had at KSU, prompting follow-up interviews with the teachers responsible. The result? Videos like the ones you'll find on this page—a back and forth between both teacher and student that highlights a particular course, activity, teaching style, or whatever the case may be.
Every semester the FPDC has a well-known guest speaker come and hold 1-2 learning institutes with Kent State faculty, staff and graduate students. This section contains various write-ups, flyers and resources from some of the major past events such as the Marcia Baxter Magolda visit in Fall 2009 and the Ken Bain visit in Winter 2010.
Creating and implementing learning outcomes at both the course and programmatic level serves to enrich the learning environment. This section provides a series of on-line modules and resources designed to guide units and individual faculty members through this process.
