Rowan Instructional Continuity Plan

The Rowan Insrtuctional Continuity Plan Web page contains resources for Rowan University faculty in the event that classroom instruction is disrupted. It has been developed by The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in collaboration with the Department of Technology Services, and is endorsed by the President’s Office.

Possible reasons for instruction to be disrupted include:

Faculty members who intend to require students to meet work deadlines via electronic submission, even if such deadlines fall during periods of University closure, may want to consider stating this expectation in their syllabi.

The Effective, Efficient Professor

Dr. Phil Wankat, Purdue University's Clifton L. Lovell Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering and Engineering Education and Director of Engineering Education Undergraduate Degree Program, spoke to faculty on October 29, 2014. Dr. Wankat is the author of "The Effective, Efficient Professor: Teaching, Scholarship and Service." He shared his views on teaching, scholarship, service and the work/life balance. Dr. Wankat has been kind enough to share his slides from his presentation: "Effective, Efficient Professors: Adjusting to a New Environment."

Dr. Wankat's book "The Effective, Efficient Professor: Teaching, Scholarship and Service" is available for borrowing from the Faculty Center Library.
