Faculty Development

The Center for Teaching and Learning strives to assist SOM faculty with teaching support and professional development by providing guidance, resources, and services. To achieve these goals, we work directly with faculty on both an individual and group basis.

Please visit our Resource Library as well as our Resource page for SOM Faculty (log in required) using the menu to the left.

Services

Consultations

CTL staff members are available to meet one-on-one with faculty and volunteer faculty to review course evaluations and student responses to instruction. We can help by providing suggestions regarding techniques for improvement. We are also available to observe and/or videotape class sessions and provide feedback and suggestions.

Workshops

The Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a variety of events for faculty on a wide range of topics. These events include live presentations and workshops, grand rounds, Webinars/Podcasts, and conferences. We also partner with other University offices to co-host events on both the Stratford and Glassboro campuses.
Additionally, CTL is here to help with specific Faculty Development program and/or site needs. If you would like to request faculty development programming on a particular topic, please contact Lisa Cardello at cardello@rowan.edu and include the following information:

  1. Specific topic and learning objective(s)
  2. Target audience and number of participants
  3. Format (one-on-one live or e-mail or audio/videoconference), workshop/seminar (live or videoconference), or educational materials
  4. Target date and time
  5. Your contact information

Instructional Development

Instructional Development focuses on Course design; Curriculum design; Course and curriculum implementation; and Evaluation of any and all of the above. CTL can assist faculty members in any of these areas. Faculty members can also submit course materials to CTL, and we will provide a written critique of those materials based upon current thinking regarding testing and measurement, syllabus development, and course design.

Support for New Faculty

The Center for Teaching and Learning supports new faculty members by providing a range of services and programming. New Faculty Orientation is offered in January and July each year and provides an overview of the University and available services. It also gives new faculty members an opportunity to meet administrators, staff and fellow faculty members. A New Course Directors workshop is offered periodically. CTL can also assist new faculty with the development of their course materials and syllabi.

Resource Library

CTL houses a variety of books, which faculty members are welcome to peruse and borrow. A robust online resource library can be found using the menu to the left.

"Faculty Focus" E-Newsletter

CTL distributes a biweekly electronic newsletter to all paid and volunteer faculty. This newsletter contains relevant articles, clinical cases, announcements, and a list of upcoming events. If you are a RowanSOM faculty member and are not receiving this newsletter, please contact Lisa Cardello at cardello@rowan.edu. For past issues, please visit our Resources for Faculty page, found in the menu to the left.

WebINARS

The RowanSOM "Teaching Essentials" Webinar series is intended for clinical faculty and includes 15-20 minute Webinars on a variety of teaching topics. These Webinars can be accessed through the RowanSOM Faculty Development Blackboard page.

WebSite

The SOM Faculty Development webpage features a calendar of events and online resource library as well as other useful information. The RowanSOM Faculty and Staff page offers additional information and resources.

Americans with Disabilities Act

CTL staff works together to assist faculty in the provision of student accommodations and services to ensure equal access to educational programs and services in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and Rowan policy. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis using disability documentation and in consultation with the faculty and students.
