Foundation for Faculty Development

These assumptions provide the foundation for planning and delivering faculty development offered by the Brobst Center for Teaching and Learning Services.

  • Faculty learning is energized by opportunities to collaborate with peers about issues in teaching and learning.

  • People learn more through active construction of knowledge rather than through passive reception of information.

  • Good teachers are grown, fostered, and supported.

  • Teaching excellence increases student learning.

  • A collaborative culture strengthens an organization’s ability to achieve goals.

  • People have an inherent desire to learn and contribute.

  • Learning is both fun and rewarding.

We encourage professional development that:

  • Extends over time and is more likely to deepen teachers’ knowledge and to meet intended goals.

  • Reflects a supportive, respectful, and trusting climate which enables successful implementation of desired change.

  • Incorporates modeling, coaching, and feedback on the theories, strategies, and techniques that are research-based best practices for learning.
