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.


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. Christopher Long

2018 TLT Faculty Fellows

David Hunter

Data-Empowered Learning
David’s fellowship project aims to mobilize a Data Science community that will bring together data science-related efforts of faculty, students, and organizations throughout the University.

Kathryn Jablokow

Digital Fluency
Kathryn aims to use her fellowship to create a Compendium of Creative Fluency that will make concepts, practices, activities, and materials covering creative fluency readily available to Penn State faculty and students.

Karen Kackley-Dutt

Immersive Experiences
Karen, a biology professor at Penn State Lehigh Valley, aims to increase environmental advocacy by exposing students to biomes through her project.

Alan Wagner

Robotics/Immersive Environment
While technology opens avenues that can erode academic integrity, it may also hold the key to guiding students to more ethical decisions. Alan’s fellowship will explore that possibility.
