ANNOUNCEMENT: teaching in higher education

Written by:


New technologies and new types of pedagogy are proliferating and it can be challenging for a faculty member to keep up. In that spirit, we’re spotlighting two courses available this summer to both part- time and full-time faculty, and graduate students interested in teaching in higher education — each course represents a valuable professional development opportunity and will keep you current with some of the most innovative teaching methods around.

Summer is the perfect time to consider taking these ONLINE courses!
