Faculty Development: Getting Faculty on the Same Page
In Fall 2011, the Technology Application Center was tasked to figure out a way to train both full time and adjunct faculty on a new policies that pertained to teaching hybrid courses. Due to a large adjunct population who needed training, the training needed to be innovative, interactive and held during non traditional work hours. This session will discuss the process of how Northern Virginia Community College is training faculty on hybrid effectiveness and course development. The session will focus on our delivery of a Hybrid Overview workshop and the Hybrid Certification Tracks 1-4 will be highlighted. We will discuss different training opportunities and various technologies also used within training workshops.
