It's an exciting time to be a faculty member at EKU!
Recognizing our faculty want to learn new pedagogical and technical skills and strategies, EKU is proud to have the Faculty Innovators Program, which combines our faculty and existing resources to provide access to opportunities for developing these important skills.
The Faculty Innovators Program has identified EKU faculty members with great expertise in teaching and learning practices, classroom techniques, and up-to-date technologies to showcase innovative teaching and learning practices on campus and to share their expertise with other faculty. The Faculty Innovators will facilitate demonstrations and workshops as well as one-on-one training with individual faculty regarding innovative teaching practices, will meet with new faculty as a part of the new faculty orientation program, and will assist them throughout the year. Faculty Innovators will also lead sessions as part of the Teaching & Learning Innovation series.
Faculty Innovators are a cadre of faculty members selected in consultation with deans and chairs who have been trained in the best practices in teaching & learning, high-impact classroom techniques, and up-to-date technologies. They have a strong desire to share that expertise with other faculty and with students.
