DEEP: Developing Excellence in Eastern's Professors
The Developing Excellence in Eastern's Professors (DEEP) system, designed and 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 courses move faculty through four scaffolded levels that contain materials and assignments that promote intentional reflection and small changes in teaching. 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.
