We discussed faculty development in particular and one of the things that I noted was a request to develop a paper of best practices for faculty development. Another member mentioned using “teaching circles”. Creating a Professional Development Day was another member’s methodology. Other items that we talked about were the social aspects of blended and online learning. This led to a discussion of ePortfolio usage and two sites were mentioned: Digication and Epsilen. To facilitate the creative process, Behance.org was also introduced.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take down a lot of notes, but if anyone who attended has any more to add, please feel free to share here.
Thanks again for attending and contributing. The best part of all, I think, was the chance to network with all of you from other institutions.
