Resources for Faculty Developers

If you are an official faculty developer, faculty member, department chair, or other leader interested in helping faculty improve teaching and learning, these resources are for you.

Faculty Needs Survey

The Faculty Needs Survey is a free resource for use in gathering feedback on faculty perceptions of :

  • Planning Instruction
  • Teaching Challenges
  • Scholarship Needs
  • Preferences for faculty development
  • General work environment

IDEA can administer the survey for you or you can use the questions on your own platform. This service is available for both IDEA client partners and non-clients.

Please fill out this brief form of interest and a member of our staff be in touch.

Workshop Plans

These plans are provided to help your quick-start creation of workshops for faculty. 

Syllabi with a Purpose

This workshop plan uses our SoundIDEA podcast episode, The Lowly Syllabus, to spur thinking about the value of creating an intentionally learner focused syllabus.

Go to the workshop plan.

Notes on Teaching and Learning

Whether your campus uses the IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction or not, our Notes about Teaching Methods and Learning Objectives are a rich source of information. The Notes themselves provide useful insight, but in addition, they each have links to other resources that can be used for faculty development.
