This is a great place to find faculty development resources. One example is our guide to Writing Effective Learning Objectives.

The Office of Faculty Relations and Professional Development provides confidential, one-on-one consultations to address issues related to faculty teaching, assessment and curriculum development. This could include issues such as:

  • Designing or revising the course syllabus
  • Changing or redesigning course assignments
  • Developing interactive activities
  • Dealing with learner issues in classroom
  • Developing course assessments and grading
  • Making the most of classroom diversity
  • Helping to turn your educational innovations into scholarly publications.

The purpose of the consultation is to support your role as Faculty. As part of the consultation process we will offer suggestions and ideas. However, it is your decision how you would want to proceed with the suggestions and ideas. All consultations are voluntary. All consultations will be confidential. Email facdev@neomed.edu to schedule a consultation!

The Office of Faculty Relations and Professional Development provides formative classroom teaching audit and customized feedback for faculty across the university. All discussions and outcomes are kept confidential; while faculty may choose to share experiences with others, our office will not. Please email facdev@neomed.edu to schedule a teaching audit.
