Introducing DEEP

The DEEP system, developed by the Faculty Innovation Workgroup, advances faculty and professional development at EKU through the design of technology and resources that raise faculty teaching to the highest in the Commonwealth. DEEP represents an ongoing commitment to excellence among EKU faculty and an investment in the continued enhancement of teaching and learning across campus.

DEEP involves multiple levels that contain materials and assignments for successful completion. Each level signifies an intensified engagement in the pedagogical topic identified by learning outcomes and cognitive process dimensions outlined in the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. The system is composed of content that is freely available online (open) and content that is available upon faculty login (closed).
