Faculty Development for the Net Generation
Saturday, January 1, 2005
If faculty and students have different perspectives, there should be a process to help faculty understand those different perspectives, as well as effective approaches to teaching their students. In this chapter from "Educating the Net Generation", Anne Moore, John Moore, and Shelli Fowler describe programs designed to enhance the faculty's fluency in information technology-and better meet the needs of the Net Generation. Virginia Tech's program for faculty, the Faculty Development Institute, as well as one designed for future faculty, the Graduate Education Development Institute, provide valuable models of faculty development.
