Fall 2021 Term: How to Engage With Faculty and Instructional Development

Thursday, September 2, 2021

A Message from Wendy Givoglu, Interim President, East and Winter Park Campuses

Welcome back full- and part-time faculty. Faculty and Instructional Development began the fall term by continuing the virtual support model implemented this past year. Their top priority has and always will be faculty support, and they designed the model below in consideration of faculty needs, the varied instructional modalities being taught and the support they provide in alignment with the academic term.

Please continue to partner with your assigned Faculty Developer/Instructional Designer.
