Furthering the educational mission of the University is all about supporting new and innovative technologies in the classroom and in the digital world. We are able to most effectively provide instructional support by working together with groups across campus. Our ITS Teaching & Learning team is celebrating a 10-year partnership with the Center for Faculty Excellence in supporting faculty and graduate instructors at UNC! As Bob Henshaw, our Liaison to the CFE, says:
“When instructors have easy access to all teaching options, students stand to benefit the most.”
It is with this idea of providing instructors with all teaching options that we continue to expand on the resources we provide and the projects we work on together. Many exciting new things have come out of or are in the works through our partnership with the CFE, including:
- Poll Everywhere
- My Course Analytics Dashboard to provide student diversity information
- Master Plan for Modernizing Carolina Classrooms
Before becoming our Teaching & Learning Director, Suzanne Cadwell served as another ITS liaison to the CFE and therefore understands and appreciates the many benefits that come with building relations across campus through these partnerships.
The partnership between Teaching & Learning and CFE has enriched the experience and efficacy of instructors and IT professionals, spurred innovation and experimentation with new technology-supported approaches and enabled instructors to provide a richer learning experience for students.
