Faculty partnerships are at the heart of everything we do.

Partner With Us

Here are just some of the ways we work with faculty to bring their ideas to life.

Active Learning

Settings that allow students to participate in the learning process have been proven by research to improve learning outcomes. To help make those environments possible at Penn State, we provide workshops, classroom visits, and podcasts to support faculty who want to incorporate active learning.

BlendLT

Blended learning occurs in courses that are delivered in face-to-face and online formats. This model helps to break down the barriers of traditional teaching and learning and makes it possible to tailor the learning experience for each student. Our BlendLT program is fully supported, cohort-based effort that helps faculty redesign and deliver blended courses.

Open Educational Resources

Reduces the overall expenses of higher education, and for this reason we promote and support faculty involvement in the development of this major initiative. OERs provide educational materials that are available to the University community with little to no cost. This effort allows faculty and staff to legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them within the University community.

Faculty spotlight: Susan Russell

Helping students develop better listening, reflecting, and decision-making skills, and helping medical students improve communication techniques with patients — these are two objectives theater professor Susan Russell has for her 2017-18 joint TLT Faculty Fellows and C-PAD project.

“The intention of this project will be to consistently open dialogues about diversity and inclusion inside and outside of the classroom through personal storytelling.”

You just have to be open to new things, ready to change your workflow and ready to change your technologies. You also need to be ready to fail, and learn from those failures. You only really learn about these technologies by using them in the flow of your scholarship and your teaching.

Through her project, Pansy will investigate how virtual labs can deliver higher quality learning experiences than traditional science and engineering laboratories.

Pierce Salguero

Expanding the Asian Studies Classroom Through Virtual Learning Spaces
Salguero will, through immersive experiences, work with his group to build on an ongoing pedagogical project that is used in the classroom to deliver ethnographic data, photography, and short documentary films to students.
