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.

The SOM Faculty Development blog features a calendar of events and online resource library as well as a blog that features relevant articles. Please visit this blog at: wordpress.rowan.edu/somfacultydevelopment/



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 and Events

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. A calendar of events is updated regularly on the Faculty Development blog.
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:

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. The faculty development blog also contains a robust online resource library

"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.
