There are few places where tradition matters in higher education. The ceremonies. The rituals. The rivalries. The history.

But that doesn’t mean it is immune to change.

In fact, you can’t miss all the changes at colleges and universities these days, from the technology that is breaking down the walls of the lecture halls to the laws that are demanding how we handle safety and equality on campus and in the classroom to the increasingly diverse group of people who teach our students.

Practically every day introduces a brave new world of teaching and learning.

The challenge, of course, is keeping all your instructors up to speed with all that change. No one person can stay on top of everything.

That is where in-service training comes in. With the right programming, you can make sure that your faculty—regular and adjunct, along with instructors and teaching assistants—have access to and actually use the professional development resources they need in order to remain compliant and relevant.

Creating that kind of program is no small task, but you can learn how in How Can I Build a Successful Faculty Development Program?

They touch on the topics, skills, and policies that you need to cover. And they give you sound ideas for successfully implementing your own inservice training.

When you are finished with this program, you will:

  • Recognize that a successful inservice program begins with careful and thoughtful design
