ItemOnline Faculty Mentoring: Remote Means to Provide Supervision and Improve Performance(2018-03) Carriere, Lisa Ackland; Edwards, CraigOnline programs, like IWU’s College of Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS), may employ hundreds of adjunct instructors who are geographically removed from their supervisors and students. With this spread comes a need for ongoing assessment and support. Typical faculty mentoring is in-person and on campus. However, an in-person assessment is sometimes impossible, and with online classes, at times unnecessary. Rather, a limited presence within an online class is more helpful for assessment and guidance. ItemAtypical use of audience response system provides opportunity to formatively assess faculty teaching and improve learning outcomes(2018-03-02) Hopper, Mari; Carroll, Megan; Wright, Serena; Bauer, Erich; Carlos, W. GrahamIn response to curricular reform, a particularly effective new approach was developed for a course offered at all nine IUSM centers. Participants will learn about interdisciplinary planning, implementation of a "Grand Rounds" approach, novel use of audience response system for retrieval practice and formative assessment of teaching methods, and how Bloom scale ratings relate to student engagement and focus.
