Educause 2013 Workshop

A Breakthrough Model for Faculty Development:
The Life-Cycle Approach

Thank you for your interest in our EDUCAUSE 2013 half-day seminar. Our year-long model consists of a week-long Summer Faculty Institute, a Fall Faculty Technology Conference on teaching with technology, and a Spring Faculty Showcase series.


We welcome the opportunity to connect and discuss the development of the model, planning, funding, promotion, and assessment of each component of the model. Contact Jeff Schomburg, Director of Instructional Technology, at 210-431-5073 to learn more.


We've gathered a collection of resources used throughout our "life-cycle" approach. We recommend opening the PDF documents with the full Adobe Reader rather than alternative PDF preview software or browser plugins.
